It’s the goal of every high school football coach and player to hold a practice on Thanksgiving and that’s exactly what the Poplarville and East Central squads did Thursday morning before scattering to spend the rest of the holiday with their families. At 7 p.m. on Friday at Poplarville, the two teams will collide in the “Hornet Bowl” to decide the Class 4A South State championship.
There are only three teams left standing in South Mississippi with two bids on the line for the state championship round Friday night. East Central travels to Poplarville in the Class 4A South State title game while Resurrection makes the 220-mile trek to Nanih Waiya in Louisville for the Class 1A South State championship contest. While Resurrection and Poplarville have each made their first state title game appearances in the previous two seasons, East Central is aiming to earn for its first.
When the Poplarville coaching staff prepares for Friday’s Class 4A South State title game, they know they’ll have to find a way to slow down East Central’s potent ground game led by senior running back Tony Brown. However, the biggest challenge may be determining a way to defend the Hornets’ main threat in the passing game — senior tight end/receiver Brad Cumbest. Despite regularly facing double- and triple-teams, the 6-foot-6, 237-pound senior has 33 catches for 716 yards and nine touchdowns.
I don't see how Ole Miss officials can look at this Egg Bowl as a major factor in deciding whether Matt Luke should be the full-time head coach.
I wouldn't call it a fluke, but this game was way off script, strange.
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".
