Prairie Ridge has arrived. Coach Chris Schremp has built a football powerhouse in Crystal Lake. The Wolves have won two Class 6A state titles, but beating out Class 8A stalwarts like Maine South and Loyola to earn the preseason No. 1 ranking shows just how much the program has grown. “It’s been 20 years of hard work to build it,” Schremp said.
Maine South senior Cam Stacy isn’t about to downplay the immensity of what happened last season. The Hawks won the Class 8A state title in November and ended Loyola’s 30-game winning streak in the process. ‘‘There was nothing like it; I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world,’’ Stacy said. ‘‘It was once in a lifetime. Well, hopefully not once in a lifetime.’’Stacy caught himself quickly because No. 2 Maine South wants to repeat. ‘‘Everyone is going 100 percent,’’ Stacy said.
Loyola, the No. 3 ranked team in the preseason Super 25, is the state’s most dependable powerhouse program. The Ramblers have played in the Class 8A state title game in four of the past six seasons. Coach John Holecek finds a way to win regardless of his team’s talent level. Loyola had several scholarship football players last season, including Sun-Times Player of the Year Jake Marwede. That isn’t the case this year.
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".
