CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It's been a long wait, but high school football is finally back in the Carolinas. Fans of high school football are in for some changes when the season kicks off this season. Offseason realignment brought significant changes to several conferences in the area, and a number of schools also changed classifications, which could totally change the landscape of high school football across North Carolina.
CHARLOTTE - Some of the top Division I football prospects in the state, and the country, reside in the Charlotte area. NBC Charlotte sports director Nick Carboni sat down with three of them for an informal chat, to get insight to what it's like to be a highly-prized college football recruit. Nick: How often do people ask you where you're going next year? Dax: We sell discount cards for our fundraiser every year. I go door to door.
CHARLOTTE - Like a lot of teenagers, Quavaris Crouch spends a lot of time online. Specifically on YouTube. But you can go ahead and count that as study time for the Harding University HIgh School running back. "I look at all the running backs," Crouch told NBC Charlotte, "and try and take things from their game and put it towards my game." Crouch studies backs obsessively on YouTube like Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly might pour over film to diagnose an opposing defense.
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".
