'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.

Woodland Hills' Miles Sanders used his receiving skills to earn top honors among running backs at the Rivals Camp Series last weekend in Columbus, Ohio. The sophomore's catching ability was key to being named position MVP.

“He won out in the end because of the consistency with which he was able to get open in one-on-ones,” said Adam Friedman, the mid-Atlantic recruiting analyst at Rivals.com. “He was able to run routes and pull away from defenders. It was good to see his explosiveness in space and his ability to catch the ball.”

Sanders, who has Pitt among his early offers, helped Woodland Hills reach the WPIAL Class AAAA final and also started as a freshman.

“When I saw him in person this time, he'd added a lot of good muscle to his frame,” said Friedman, who watched last year's championships at Heinz Field.

Sanders was ranked second among offensive players at the Rivals camp, behind only wideout Alex Stump of St. Edward High School near Cleveland. With time, Sanders should become a national recruit.
