’27 LB will have a hard time cracking the most talent laden roster in the KHSAA, but his skills and frame will give him a chance
Trenten Malone is one of the most exciting LBer prospects coming out of the Louisville-area. He is already 6’0,” and weighs 175-pounds. He moves like an antelope and hits like a ton of bricks. He has pledged to Trinity High, and that is a hard place to get any substantive, early PT. Regardless, this guy figures to be a big piece of the Shamrock puzzle going forward.HB Lyon, Scouting Division, KPGFootball
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, Trenten Malone from Louisville, Kentucky and about to enroll at Trinity High School wouldn’t it?
Malone is among the better LBers in the largest metropolitan area in the commonwealth of Kentucky. Malone is a class of ’27 guy who has pledged to enroll and play his HS football for Louisville’s Trinity High.
The Shamrocks have won 27-state football titles and are the holders of the commonwealth’s longest win-streak in football (50-games). Needless to say, getting much PT for them as a freshman is between “not likely” to “nearly impossible.”
We have it on fair authority that none of Trinity’s four (4)-former “Mr. Footballs” played as freshmen (Keith Calvin,1973; Jeff Brohm, 1989; Brian Brohm, 2003; or James Quick, 2012). Who knows, perhaps Malone may end up being the first.
Trinity is coming off a tough season, by Shamrock standards (8-5 in ’22, as “The Rocks” lost in the Regional Finals, 10-7, to Lexington’s Bryan Station). This might be the year there is room at the Inn, so to speak.
We can’t really tell you what Malone did statistically in middle school. We can tell you he has performed well in off-season, all-star settings. We can tell you he seems to make all-star rosters. That is not all, however.
This is an athlete with a very good frame, for where he figures to play. Malone is 6’0,” and weighs in at a well-put-together 175-pounds. Our Derby City folks tell us he moves like an antelope and hits like a ton of bricks.
There is one other things which bodes well for his future success. Trinity seems mighty glad to be getting him.
We have awarded this to Trenten Malone 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 advance his burgeoning prep-career. On this basis, Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and accomplished ’27 LB 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 Louisville, Kentucky’s Trenten Malone.
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!
