Ron Moyer was sitting in his guidance director’s office at Amherst Regional High School in the early 1980s when his secretary alerted him to six girls waiting outside to see him. They were six seniors on the Hurricanes’ girls basketball team. Moyer knew why they were there. Then-Amherst athletic director Charlie Abramson had been persistently asking him to coach the team. He’d rebuffed the offers up to that point. Moyer had been a boys coach at Hopkins Academy and still considered himself one.
GREENFIELD — Every eye in the stadium fixated on Greenfield running back RJ Byrd. The Green Wave had just tied the Frontier Regional football team in overtime with a 5-yard touchdown pass from Owen Phelps to Daniel Vega. Phelps looked right and floated a fade just past the leaping Frontier corner’s outstretched hand. Greenfield went for the 2-point conversion after that touchdown. Convert and the Green Wave beat the Red Hawks for the first time since 2013.
Greg Vouros was keeping his eyes and ears open for an athletic director job after receiving a master’s degree in athletic administration. Mohawk Trail Regional School of Buckland decided to add a full-time athletic director position at the end of last school year. Previously the position was part time with a stipend and tied in with the physical education teacher’s job. The first opportunity Vouros discovered turned out to be the right one. He started as Mohawk’s athletic director in August.
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".
