'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Anyone who wants to know the best scouting report on Jaime Fell as a football player needs to go no further than his head coach at Frazier, Mike Steeber.

After all, Steeber has seen enough of Fell's accomplishments during the senior's career to give an assessment on the standout wide receiver better than anyone.

“He has excellent hands and runs routes very well,” said Steeber. “And he makes plays.”

The latter comment is more of an understatement as Fell did more than make plays for the Commodores.

As a junior, the 6-2, 175-pound wide receiver caught 32 passes for 589 yards and scored nine touchdowns.

As a senior, he grabbed 47 passes for 878 yards and added another nine TDs.

He was tabbed Tri-County South All-Conference and All-Fayette County both years. He also made the Pennsylvania Football news Class A Second Team All-State list.

Fell will be taking his pass catching skills to Juniata College after signing with the school.

Juniata, a Division III school in Huntingdon, is coming off its most successful season since 2003 in the Centennial Conference.

Fell picked Juniata over Washington & Jefferson, Westminster, and Seton Hill.

“It really came down to Juniata and W&J and I really liked the area (where Juniata is),” said Fell. “The coaches told me I could come in and compete right away and that is exciting, too.”

Fell is a two-sport star at Frazier, also being the top pitcher and a leading hitter on the school's baseball team.

Also a gifted student, he is ranked in the top 10 of his senior class academically.

The son of David and Kelly, he resides in Perryopolis.
