Pittsburg’s first experience in CIF regional football games wasn’t just good. It was great. Justin Boyd threw three touchdown passes, two to his cousin A’jae Boyd, and Willie Harts caught a TD pass and ran for another score to lead the Pirates (9-2) to a 37-14 victory at Granite Bay in the North Regional Division 1-A final Saturday night. Granite Bay (12-3), the Sac-Joaquin Section Division 2 champions, had won four of five meetings between the schools.
New UCLA football coach Chip Kelly made the 180-mile North to Tulare this week and spent three hours on the Tulare Union campus.He and 22-year Tulare Union coach Darren Bennett talked a lot of football. "But he didn't come all the way up here to talk to an old high school coach like me," Bennett said. "He definitely doesn't want to let Kazmeir get away.
If it’s hard to beat a good rival team twice in a season, try four times in two years. That’s what Serra’s football team did Saturday with a thrilling 31-30 victory over St. Francis in the Central Coast Section Division 2 Open championship at Independence High in San Jose. Down 31-17 heading into the fourth quarter, third-seeded St. Francis (9-4) closed to within a touchdown on a 9-yard run by Darrell Page with 10:01 to play. The Lancers got the ball back with 3:20 left near midfield.
I keep thinking Bay Area football is slipping. Evidently not. Eight teams to state last year, eight more this season, including 4 of the 5 spots at Sacramento State. Congratulations De La Salle, Pittsburg, Serra, St. Francis, Half Moon Bay, Milpitas, McClymonds and Galileo.
Very happy for Pittsburg coach Victor Galli who has had to watch the De La Salle championship march for so many years. Lot of pent up frustration for a really good program, which showed greatness tonight. https://t.co/4n6rzhPkNe

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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
