Six high school football games are on tap Friday — and several provide unique matchups. State College has been on an incredible roll on offense, and it’ll look to continue that against Mechanicsburg. Tyrone and Bellefonte should battle it out in a close contest, and Bald Eagle Area will look to rebound from a tough loss last week against Central this week. Penns Valley, Philipsburg-Osceola and St. Joseph’s are all also hoping to put an end to their respective losing streaks.
We’re now in the fifth week of high school football — season’s going fast, isn’t it? — and we’re at the point where the big picture is starting to come into focus. State College’s offense has appeared unstoppable so far. Bellefonte and Bald Eagle Area are both 3-1 and could be on the verge of making this a season to remember. And as far as Penns Valley, Philipsburg-Osceola and St. Joseph’s, it’s all about finding a way to rebound.
Each week, the CDT sports staff will flash back to some of the biggest high school football storylines from 10, 20 and even 30 years ago. In this week’s edition, standout defensive efforts and big-name players highlight the past. Take a look: 10 years ago (Sept. 21, 2007) Penns Valley’s defense couldn’t have played much better. The Rams held Lewistown to minus-2 yards of rushing as they cruised to a 24-6 victory. In the first half, Lewistown managed just 36 total offensive yards.
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".
