'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.

USO's offense overcame a slow start and erupted in the second half to defeat Perry, 36-6, in a dreary regular-season finale Thursday for the City League teams.

After a sluggish first half, USO quarterback Ronald Brown got things moving in the third quarter with a pair of scoring drives.

Brown, who finished 22 of 35 for 184 yards and 6 touchdowns, first connected with Marcus Johnson, who finished with three touchdown catches, on a 48-yard scoring pass. Johnson finished with touchdown catches of 8 and 15 yards.

After a Panthers fumble recovery, Brown completed a 42-yard pass to Abner Roberts for his second touchdown catch to make it 18-6. Roberts scored the first touchdown off a 4-yard shuffle pass.

The Panthers (7-0, 5-0) and the Commodores (3-5, 2-3) will face off again at 7 p.m. next Friday in the opening round of the City League playoffs at Cupples Stadium.
