How long has it been since Jeff Davis was last in the state football rankings? Well, back then, coach Lee Carter was more concerned with running the ball himself (or at least blocking for the runner) than calling plays. The Vols moved into the Alabama Sports Writers Association Class 7A poll this week for the first time since 2003, back when Carter was a fledgling sophomore fullback at Alabama State. JD (3-1) jumped in following a 38-35 victory at Enterprise last week.
TROY — Damion Willis had already shown his Troy teammates, flourishing this spring and throughout the preseason, that he had the potential to be a breakout receiver. Maybe it even inspired one of the veterans. “The first day we got on the field and were running routes and catching the ball, I knew this dude was going to be a player,” Deondre Douglas said.
Troy quarterback Brandon Silvers’ 32-yard touchdown run last weekend in a 27-24 win at New Mexico State — and particularly the way he chose to initially celebrate — coaxed some laughter from his teammates, too. “Sometimes you have to do what you have to do. That is sometimes,” Silvers said. “I’m not a big runner, but I will if I have to.”The 32-yard romp was the second longest run of the senior’s career to last year's 51-yard touchdown against Appalachian State.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
