The Hardin-Simmons football team got back out on the field Thursday, but Saturday was the first time in pads, and there was a new excitement around Shelton Stadium. This summer, the Cowboys players put an emphasis on getting work in when possible. Some of that was done in the players’ hometowns and some was done on campus in Abilene. But having everyone back together and the coaches out on the field has brought an urgency to the 2017 season over the past three days.
With spring practice and summer workouts over, the Hardin-Simmons football team opens up fall camp on Thursday morning after checking in to campus Wednesday. The Cowboys expect almost 180 players for camp and open with a 3 p.m. practice Thursday at Shelton Stadium. And with all the work HSU has put into the 2017 campaign since the 2016 one ended, it’s a special time for the program. “It’s kind of the culmination of a lot of different things,” HSU head coach Jesse Burleson said.
The magical run by the Wylie Little League Junior All-Stars came to a close on Wednesday as the team was eliminated from the Junior League World Series in Taylor, Michigan. Playing the West squad out of Encinitas Little League in California for the second time in three games, Wylie came up on the short end of the 11-3 score line, giving the Southwest representatives their second loss of the tournament. “The bad part about it, it was the team we beat the first game,” Wylie coach Damon Albus said.
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".
