’24 Panther deserving of ‘Mr. Football’ hype and consideration

Talk about your “do-it-all” guys, Partin is as close as any HS team will ever come to a one-man band. This guy led his club in carries, yards from scrimmage, passing yards, passing attempts, 2-point conversions, offensive scoring and we aren’t sure we have exhausted all the categories. Partin is a 6’2,” 210-pound kid we believe goes to either RB or MLB in his college future. He also is squarely in the Mr. Football race for ’23.

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 PerformerSteve Partin, QB,RB,WR, and MLB from Knox Central High in Barbourville, KY wouldn’t it? 

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

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

A reporter, from around Kentucky, posted on Twitter a question which seemed simple enough. The question was “Who will win Mr. Football in ’23?”

The answer is anything but simple as there are a number of worthy candidates from around the commonwealth. We have to openly wonder who can state a better case than Knox Central’s ultra-versatile, unbelievably productive, two-way super-star, Steve Partin, class of ’24?

Try to consider what he did in ’22. Partin played QB and MLB mostly with stints at WR, PK, and RB if you consider him as a run-first QB-option. His accomplishments are almost too numerous to list.

Partin gained 1,782-yards from scrimmage in 271-carries. Partin scored 26-rushing TD’s. Partin scored 185-points (26-rushing TD’s 2-receiving TD’s, 1-Xtra point, and 8-two-pointers).

Partin threw for close to 1,000-yards (927). Partin completed 61% of his passing attempts (.61403508771, 70 for 114). Partin had a TD:INT ratio of 11:2. Partin caught 10-passes for 168-yards and another 2-scores by way of air.

Partin played defense. Partin was second on the team with 71-tackles from his MLB-post.

If you are getting the impression that Partin was close to a “one-man band,” it would be a fair one; though there really are no such things in football. To remark he was valuable is an understatement.

In keeping with his prowess as an athlete, we might mention he is a middle of the batting order stud in baseball. Matter of fact, he is among the leaders on the baseball team in round-trippers, but we don’t really cover baseball.

We have awarded this to Partin as we can’t fathom how any one student athlete could have taken the skills the Good Lord gave him and done anymore with it to help his team. On this basis, Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and accomplished ’24 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 Knox Central’s, Steve Partin. 

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!
