A strength that powered a once quiet life in Baton Rouge to the ultimate pinnacle. A six-year NFL career in Pittsburgh as a running back, highlighted by back-to-back Super Bowl crowns. That was the path taken for Sidney Thornton. A road that lead him from Capitol High to Northwestern State and from Natchitoches to a second-round pick of the Steelers in 1977. "People asked me if they knew where I was going. I had never known where I was going. That's the truth, I didn't," Thornton said.
When you talk about successful basketball teams, the old thought process is that you need to have a deep roster to be elite. Maybe seven, or so, strong players. Loyola has that, anchored by junior forward Chelsea Johnson. It is a big reason why this team entered Wednesday at 19-2. Here's the thing, though: they go seven players strong...but that's it. They legitimately do not have more than that on the roster. "It can be tough but it also is fun, as well. I think it has helped us all grow a little bit.
When the bright lights shine on nine-year-old Khylan Johnson, you know the pint-sized powerhouse is ready for the spotlight. In a state that has produced some of the top wide receivers in the NFL, like his favorite, Odell Beckham, Jr., little Khylan is confident about his feature. When I asked if he thinks he will be the next big playmaker from the state, his answer was simple: a confident nod and a quiet, "yes." No hesitation and why should he?
Crazy small world. Met Austin-based artist Nick Johnson today and found out he played football for @HofstraPride during the Flying Dutchmen days of the 90’s.
Check out Team Victorious if you’re in the Austin area. Must-see for sports fans. https://t.co/v0NOElv2vE
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".
