'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.

Scott Sterrett, a senior, will be attending Johns Hopkins University next year.

He will major in biomedical engineering and also be on the swim team.

“I'm hoping to make an impact as a freshman,” he said. “They are one of the top D-III teams and I'm looking forward to being part of the team.”

But before going to college, he is making an impact on the Fox Chapel varsity swim team.

Last week he won two individual races and was part of two winning relay teams as the Foxes beat Shady Side Academy.

Here's a closer look at Sterrett:
