'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.

Zac Horner ran for 103 yards and Jarret Kintz intercepted two passes, including one for a 67-yard scoring return. Ryan Cox had 93 yards passing and a rushing touchdown for the Tigers.
