Jarrius Robertson is 14, but doesn't look a day older than 9 or 10. Doctors thought he'd never make it past 1 or 2. Robertson, or Li'l JJ as everybody calls him, was born with biliary atresia, a liver disease that affects his growth.
Saints offensive lineman Tony Hills grew up a lot like all the kids surrounding him Tuesday at the Salvation Army Center of Hope. "Low income; living from apartment to apartment; mom had to work a lot to make ends meet; violence in the area," Hills recalled.
Wil Lutz didn't look like a kicker who had just made the biggest, most redemptive kick of his 22-year-young life. His face during postgame interviews Sunday was just as stoic as it was five weeks ago, when his 61-yarder sailed wide left at the end of the New Orleans Saints' season-opening loss to the Oakland Raiders.
The Saints got their first win of the season out of the way in dramatic fashion, and they've had a week to lick their wounds. Now, they seek to build on that momentum as the reeling Panthers roll into town. The Saints (1-3) capitalized on a host of late-game errors by the Chargers to win 35-34 in Week 4.
This time, Dwain Jenkins is on the other side ... the east bank side. It's the side he belongs on, considering Lutcher is his alma mater. Jenkins is in his first season as head coach at Lutcher after spending the past three seasons as head coach at St. James.
Three weeks ago, who would have guessed that St. Augustine would ever make an appearance in this weekly column listing the best games of the week? The Purple Knights were reeling, losing their first three games, including a pair of double-digit losses to Scotlandville and Landry-Walker. Going back to last season, St.
Collette Franklin has never seen any of the 60-something tackles her son has made this season. Nor did she see any of the 158 tackles and six sacks Derrick Munson made last season on his way to being Defensive Player of the Year on The New Orleans Advocate's all-metro team.
Fittingly, Jared Butler intercepted Newman's desperation pass to the end zone on the final play of the game Friday. The Butler did it all game. Well, at least in the second half when he took over at quarterback and breathed some life into the Riverside offense.
Julien Gums admits that he and his De La Salle teammates are looking forward to the highly anticipated District 9-3A showdowns later in the season against St. James and Lutcher. But the Cavaliers showed once again Thursday night that they aren't looking too far ahead.
As Buddy Hield prepared for his Smoothie King Center debut Tuesday night, his mind is also back home in the Bahamas. "It's a scary time when you have a hurricane coming to the Bahamas, especially coming to our islands," Hield said after Tuesday morning's shootaround. "People work hard down there."
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
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".
