The Veterans Memorial Patriots (10-1) punched their ticket to the second round of the state playoffs with a 25-17 victory over the Brownsville Lopez Lobos, and they got to do it at Tom Landry Stadium for the first time this year. Once the stadium started to fill with Patriot fans earlier than usual during warmups, junior quarterback Landry Gilpin said he knew it was going to be a good night in front of the home-crowd. “Just walking in, there was like a presence on the field,” Landry Gilpin said.
Before this season kicked off, Landry and David Gilpin had a conversation. The quarterback told his father and Patriots’ Head Coach they needed to bring a district championship to Veterans Memorial. Ten games later, the Playoff Patriots (9-1, 7-1) are back in the postseason with a share of the 31-5A title under their belt, and are out to build off last year’s performance that took them three-deep. “We’re happy to get a share of the district championship,” David Gilpin said.
A week after suffering their first district loss, the Sharyland Rattlers flipped the script and played the role of spoiler, ending Mission Veterans’ perfect season with a 48-42 win in a shootout at Valley View ISD Stadium. The 48-minute battle came down to the final play of the game as each team rose to the occasion time and time again, but the unit who locked up the victory for the Rattlers was the Sharyland defense.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
