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.   

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.   

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, OT, Jayden Wright from Louisville, Kentucky’s duPont Manual High School, wouldn’t it?    

We pride ourselves on our ability to dig around to find the next generation of high school superstars before anyone else has noticed these guys yet. We believe we have done just that today.

Now when we say today’s recipient has yet to be noticed, that will seem odd. After all, how do you miss a 6-3, 286-pound OT, particularly when he plays for one of Kentucky’s premier 6A teams and is sporting a 3.2 GPA at one of Kentucky’s premier academic institutions of secondary learning?

Well, his just having finished his sophomore season would be the major reason. We aren’t accustomed to players finding the Crimsons’ lineup while still a sophomore.

Wright was a mainstay along a front line which cleared the way for 2,259-yards rushing from scrimmage with 33-rushing TDs in 377-carries. That is just a hair under 6-yards per carry and a rushing TD every 11.5 or so efforts.

He didn’t do that against a bunch of “Joe-Slappies” either. duPont Manual (and no, the small case “d” wasn’t a typo) played La Salle (Cincinnatti, OH), St. Xavier twice, Male, Ballard, and North Hardin in ’21, all of whom are historically athletic and tough.

Matter of fact, the Crimsons were eliminated from the playoffs’ second round at the hands of the classification’s eventual champion, St. Xavier, and by a very narrow, 18-16 margin. One might say the 8-4, 3rd district team was “right there” in pursuing its own possible 6A Football Title.

Wright is a kid who isn’t done growing or filling out his frame. We believe he projects inside, if he doesn’t continue to physically develop, but we can predict his growing into a long, lengthy, super athletic “edge” protector-type at the collegiate level.

We believe this kid’s floor is the FCS, Division I level. His ceiling may be the National Football League.

This is a kid who will be among the class of ’24 leaders along the offensive line going forward. I would write this down if I were you.

In any event, we believe it entirely appropriate to feature Jayden Wright this week in this article. We also found his efforts deserving of nourishment. 

Mingua Beef Jerky agreed this young man could use a bolt of protein. They volunteered to send him some straight away.

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 duPont Manual’s Jayden Wright. 

This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT and don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
