How can I use command blocks to detect a specific player within a certain radius of the command?

I can detect a specific player, or a player within a certain radius, but not both.

    Hi Ethan, what's the command(s) you've got so far? If you show us your work, we'll be able to help figure out what's going wrong :) – Robotnik Jul 20 '15 at 4:05

You can specify multiple arguments by separating them with commas. Enter the following command into a command block:

/testfor @a[name=<name>,r=<radius>], where <name> is a player's username and <radius> is the circular distance around the block.

You could put this command block on an infinite redstone loop to make it run over and over, all the time.

    And to just detect any player in the radius leave out the name and just have the radius. Example : /testfor @a[r=<radius>] and he explained this well enough for you to get the rhythm of it. – Eisler 485 Jul 21 '15 at 7:37

    and to limit the number of players to detect use @p[c=<countMax>] – ydobonebi Jul 28 '15 at 5:08
