Sophomore RB coming off incredible year looks toward an even bigger junior season

Demauriah Brown is a kid who has been tearing up the 2A classification. Sadly, his team’s ‘worse than expected’ outcomes have diminished his performance. Still, the kid is tearing it up and looks to be springing into a junior year which will see him soar to even greater heights.

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.            

…[S]omething different and superior to all other beef jerkies…

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

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 PerformerDemauriah Brown, from Danville, Kentucky’s Danville High, wouldn’t it? 

Demauriah Brown, were we still doing our old underclassmen all-state football teams, would have virtually been a shoe-in for the sophomore team at either RB or DB. As it is, Brown turned in the type year which should garner him some serious All-State consideration when the AP opens its nominations.

Brown, a ’25 prospect who is listed at 5’11,” 170-pounds with a 3.0 GPA, gained 1,971-yards in only twelve games in ’22. Brown score 28-rushing TD’s, averaged 10.5-yards per carry, averaged 164-yards a contest, and average scoring a TD every 6.71-carries. Brown was far from just a threat to run the football.

Brown scored 28-TD’s rushing, a TD receiving, a TD on a 65-yard “scoop and score,” three (3) two-point conversions, and housed a kick

In leading his team in posting 192-points last season, or 16-points a contest, Brown scored 28-TD’s rushing, a TD receiving, a TD on a 65-yard “scoop and score,” three (3) two-point conversions, and housed a KR. Brown contributed in all three phases.

Defensively, Brown was among the leaders in tackles, TFL’s, and FR’s. That is a ton of production out of one player in all three phases of a football game.


We have awarded this to Brown as we can’t fathom how any one athlete could ever mean more to his team’s production. On this basis, Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and accomplished ’25 RB/DB/Athete could use a bolt of protein and a sweet T-shirt. The company volunteered to send that to him, straight away.  

Join us next week as we return to honor another weekly prize winner. 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 Danville High’s, Demauriah Brown.

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!
