Ronnie Mingua began experimenting with making beef jerky back in the 1990s. He shared his efforts with neighbors and friends, soon realizing he had come up with something different and superior to all other beef jerkies on the market. From these humble beginnings, Mingua Beef Jerky got its start.
Today, the Mingua Beef Jerky Company still prides itself on using its old-fashioned, all-natural recipes which offer outstanding products to customers across the nation. The recipes are a family tradition, passed down from generation to generation.
Migua Beef Jerky uses Enviro-Pac CHU-2000 equipment to cook its meat to USDA required levels for both moist or dry operation. Mingua Beef Jerky wants you to become one of its many satisfied customers by sampling its quality hand sliced, all natural beef jerky. We know you’ll love it and come back for more, again and again.
Our recipes and our quality ingredients, hand-cut from solid pieces of beef, are never chopped or formed like other brands, making our products superior and one of a kind. That would make our products similar to this week’s Protein Packed Performer, Class of ’24, RB, Brady Hensley from Richmond, Kentucky’s Madison Central High School, wouldn’t it?
Don’t know whether you remember this but we predicted Brady Hensley would be a star in high school before anyone. To refresh your recollection, we picked him No. 8 in the entire commonwealth of Kentucky among class of ’24’s sure to hit the field as freshmen. That article was published January 6, 2020.
We had written an earlier article about Hensley and his backfield mate, Kenyatta Hardge, when the pair played for Caudill Middle School. That article was published in 2019 and it christened the two players, “Thunder (Hardge) and Lightning (Hensley).”
We told readers in the ’20 article that Hensley, in middle school, had tallied 7,234 yards rushing and scored 153 TDs on the KYMSFA “junior-high” circuit. We have no idea if Hensley will replicate those numbers in high school; but Friday night Hensley demonstrated it isn’t completely out of the question.
Last Friday night, Hensley’s Madison Central ran its mark to 7-1 in beating the tee-total stuffings out of 8th-district foe, George Rogers Clark, 43-7. Brady Hensley (’24) rushed the football 22-times for 245-rushing yards and 4-rushing TDs.
Like is almost always the case, Hensley had some help. Adrien Parks (’22) also eclipsed the century mark, gaining 102-yards on 13-carries with a couple of ground scores. On the night, the Indians pounded the ground for 371-rushing yards and 6-ground scores.
Hard to lose a ball game running the ball like that! May not even be possible.
Kyran Jackson (’22) had 8-tackle to pace the defense with 2-QB sacks while Haden Kiser(’24) had the other two sacks on the evening. Brady Worrix (’22) picked the lone pass.
Madison County hosts Bryant Station next weekend for the number one seed in the first two rounds of the playoffs. Both Class 6A, 8th-District teams enter the contest with identical 7-1 marks.
For the T-shirt and the bolt of protein, we asked our friends at Mingua Beef Jerky to send old “Lightening” some nourishment. Like always, they were thrilled to oblige.
Join us next week as we honor another worthy player. Until then, pop some Mingua Beef Jerky in your mouth and savor the quality and flavor which sets it apart from all the competition. Remember, our product is superior and one of a kind; just like Madison Central High School’s Brady Hensley.
This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
