’24 WR/ATH is the commonwealth’s highest rated prospect

Shaun Boykin’s committed recently to the University of Louisville. This 3-star, nationally rated baller chose Louisville over UK, WVU, Marshall, Central Michigan, among many others. You don’t get many prospects approaching 200-pounds ripping off 4.4-second 40’s. Matter of fact, that type speed is rare coming in any size package.

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 PerformerShaun Boykins from Radcliff, Kentucky’s North Hardin High wouldn’t it? 

Shaun Boykins is the consensus top-rated prospect in the commonwealth of Kentucky. There are numerous reasons that is so.

First of all, he is projected to play WR in college. He has an upper-level, NFL-type body to play there.

Boykins is 6’1,” and weighs 200-pounds. Boykins has a registered 4.4-second, 40-yard dash time and a 4.0 GPA, making his passing through the NCAA Clearinghouse a cod-lock cinch.

Boykins had 1,118-all purpose yards, 56-receptions, 897-receiving yards, 10-TD receptions, 28-carries, 221-yards rushing, and 5 ground-scores

Boykins had a big junior year on the field for a team which struggled. North Hardin, a traditional powerhouse at the 6A level, went 4-7 in ’22 and will be looking to rebound in ’23 and put that work slate in the rear view mirror.

Boykins caught 56-passes for 897-receiving yards with 10-aerial TD’s. He rushed the football 28-times, for 221-yards, and scored 5-scores over the ground.

Boykins was the team’s leading scorer on the year with 90-points. Over an 11-game season, that works out to 8.2-points per outing.

Boykins contributed defensively to the ball club efforts. That isn’t something seen everyday playing “Big Boy Ball” in the commonwealth. Boykins was credited with an INT on the year and numerous PBU’s.

Boykins picked the Cardinals over a slew of other offers. We won’t list every offer, but the Wildcats, WVU, Marshall’s Thundering Herd, and Central Michigan were among the many suitors.

Boykins is the top rated prospect in Kentucky. He is so regarded by both Rivals and 247Sports. The latter has him ranked the 912th best high school football player in the entire nation. With well over a million young men playing high school football across the country, that rating is really something.

We have awarded this to Boykins because being the commonwealth’s top-rated prospect, maintaining a 4.0 GPA, and committing to play collegiately for the Louisville Cardinals is a jerky-worth week in anyone’s book we would suspect. On this basis, Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and accomplished ’24 WR/ATH 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 North Hardin High’s Shaun Boykins. 

This is Fletcher W. Long reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE and don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
