Ethan Barker said he just happened to be in the right place at the right time to get an offer to play baseball at the University of Tennessee. The Midland High grad and Midland College sophomore outfielder made a pledge to the Volunteers on Twitter on Tuesday and is one step closer to playing college baseball at a power conference program. Barker said he hasn’t had an official visit to Tennessee but is planning on taking one soon.
AREA PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Forsan QB Hergert thriving in larger roleForsan coach Jason Phillips knew that this year’s offense was going to be focused around quarterback Bryce Hergert. Hergert played well as a junior and with the loss of 1,800-yard rusher Tearell McVae to graduation, the Buffaloes were going to place a lot of trust in their senior quarterback. Hergert hasn’t disappointed and he has continued to deliver for the Buffaloes this season.
It was only a matter of time before Tylan McCalister broke loose for a big play to help Monahans. In a tight game between Monahans and Greenwood, McCalister provided the difference when he broke loose for a 68-yard touchdown run with 5:13 left in the game. The Loboes’ defense did the rest by coming up with four turnovers and a couple of key fourth-down stops in a 27-21 victory over the Rangers at J.M. King Memorial Stadium.
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".
