With college and pro football around the corner and the pro baseball season winding down, there are plenty of Hometown Heroes to check on. Josh Lucas, who previously called Bradenton home during his junior college career, added his name to State College of Florida’s Major League Baseball tradition this past weekend. The St. Louis Cardinals called up Lucas on Saturday, which means Lucas became the 30th player in the nearly 60-year history of SCF to earn an MLB promotion.
The up-tempo, no-huddle offense clicked, while the offensive and defensive lines were overpowering. The problem for Lakewood Ranch High was those things belonged to Sarasota Riverview. The Rams struck quick and often in the first half en route to a 41-6 victory over the Mustangs in Friday’s preseason Kickoff Classic. “That’s my responsibility, I coach the O-line,” Lakewood Ranch head coach Mick Koczersut said.
Former Manatee High linebacker Greg Reeves is now a scholarship football player for the University of South Florida. New Bulls head coach Charlie Strong awarded Reeves, a sophomore who attended Air Force Academy Prep School following his Manatee High graduation in 2014, a full scholarship on Thursday. Reeves played special teams last year, tallying seven tackles, as a preferred walk-on. USF announced Strong’s scholarship offer to Reeves in a video posting to Twitter.
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".
