Kevin Amuri is the type of player who could get offered at a combine just walking around the competition and shaking hands with the college recruiters. He passes the “eye test” and hits all the “measurables” or physical standards for where he is deployed and which college recruiters appear to covet. We believe his on-field performance will begin to match his physical appearance as soon as this coming Fall.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball’s Senior Scout and Editorial Board Member
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, WR, Kevin Amuri from Lexington, Kentucky’s Lafayette High School, wouldn’t it?
The first thing we should mention is Lexington’s Lafayette High School plays football in the tough Class 6A, District 7. We also want to put out there that we have given this award, and prize package, to a variety of different types of players.
Obviously, the present-day, right now star has dominate this award. We have given it to defensive standouts, offensive stars, men along the trenches, all types of skill players, specialists, even to middle school players. What we haven’t done yet is award it to a player with undeniable potential.
Well, there is a first time for everything.
Kevin Amuri is a WR in the ’24 class whose stats may be uninspiring; but he absolutely passes the eye-test. Amuri is 6-2, weighs 170-pounds, has plus length and separation speed and can get offered just by walking around a college combine in shorts and shirt. He doesn’t even need to participate in a single drill.
Next year, his Generals will need big-time production from him to turn around the 2-9 it posted in ’21. As a testament to high school football at Kentucky’s highest classification, Lafayette has talent and frames walking around which rivals college teams when coming off its bus. Amuri is definitely one of those types.
Amuri played sparingly in ’21 but we still believe in Kevin Amuri. We believe he is a top-level, skilled athlete who is just awaiting his chance to break out onto the scene and establish himself as a high school star. We believe ’22 will be “his season.”
In order to aid his ascendancy, we thought we would ask our friends (and yours) at Mingua Beef Jerky to send him some nourishment and protein. Mingua Beef Jerky agreed with us and 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 Lafayette High School’s Kevin Amuri.
