'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.

When it came to picking a place to play college soccer, Elizabeth Forward's Rachel Collage had one requirement.

“It had to be a school in a city,” Collage said.

What better city than New York City?

Collage signed her letter of intent Wednesday to play soccer at Fordham in the Bronx. Collage is the first Elizabeth Forward girls soccer player to receive a Division I scholarship.

“I have been playing soccer for virtually life, so I knew it was going to be a part of my college process,” Collage said. “I visited a lot of schools, and I loved Fordham.”

Collage committed to Fordham in June.

Collage, a midfielder, was named to the all-section and All-WPIAL teams two consecutive seasons.

Collage helped the Warriors advance to the playoffs the past three years.

In her sophomore year, EF went 12-9-1 and reached the semifinals. As a junior, she helped EF go 12-6. This past season, EF went 11-4-4 before bowing out of the playoffs.

Collage was also the captain of the Century United Football Club of Pittsburgh that won two PA West State Cup championships.

Collage also played for the Olympic Development Team as well as Elite Soccer United.

Collage is also a standout on EF's track team.

Fordham plays in the Atlantic 10. The Rams went 5-9-3 this past season.
