The Sonora High School football team hasn't found itself in a close game since September. The second round of the playoffs didn't provide a challenge, either. Sonora's offense produced 35 points by halftime -- and its defense pitched a shutout until the fourth quarter -- in a 56-8 win over Spearman on Friday in Abernathy. The Broncos improved to 12-0 and advanced to play Childress (11-1) in next week's Class 3A Division II regional semifinals at a site and time to be determined.
The Richland Springs Coyotes lost for only the fifth time this decade in a surprising 62-16 blowout against Milford on Friday in Hamilton in the second round of the playoffs. It was the first time since 2009 that Richland Springs lost due to the 45-point mercy rule. It also snapped a string of 11 straight playoff wins for the Coyotes, who were trying to win their third straight state title and ninth overall.
The 2017 high school football season has been another memorable one in West Texas. We saw a little bit of everything during the 11 weeks that comprised the regular season. Before we venture any further into the playoffs, here's a look back at the best 2017 had to offer:We have to go with a three-way tie between San Angelo Central-Killeen Shoemaker, Sonora-Jim Ned and Reagan County-Coahoma. All three were exciting games that involved gutty comebacks on the road.
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".
