'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.

Ean Lee ran 10 times for 149 yards and two touchdowns in leading Homer-Center to a 42-6 victory over Juniata Valley (6-5) in the opening round of the District 6-A playoffs Friday night.

Aaron Berezansky also scored twice for the Wildcats.

Tailback Mike Newhouse went over 1,000 yards rushing for the season and joined Lee in becoming the first running back tandem in Indiana County to rush for more than 1,000 yards.

Newhouse also became the second leading rusher in Homer-Center history, surpassing Mike Hilliard and needing 200 yards to pass Pete Kuta.

Homer-Center, which led 27-0 at halftime, will play the winner of Saturday's matchup between Bellwood-Antis and Bishop Carroll next week in the semifinals, site and time to be determined.

Portage 49, Blairsville 14 — Caleb Kephart had three rushing touchdowns and recovered a fumble and went 9 yards for a score to carry Portgage in its District 6, Class A playoff victory. Quarterback Michael Bryja scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak and later threw a 14-yard pass to C.W. Miller.

Richland 46, Ligonier Valley 6 — Tanner Solarczyk scored on runs of 3 and 35 yards as Richland's District 6, Class AA playoff game was never in question.

Richland scored 46 unanswered points before Ligonier Valley's Dereck Croyle scored the lone touchdown on a 5-yard run in the third quarter.
