Makers of the World's Finest Jerky Products

’26 QB and multi-sport, varsity star has shown he has what it takes 

Betsy Layne is a school off to a tremendous start. The Bobcats are 3-0 on the young season headed to Hindman, Kentucky to play District 7’s Knott County High School (1-2) in a game for which the Bobcats will be heavy favorites. Betsy Layne played in the Dr. Mike Goble Bowl last Thursday and scored a resounding 43-0 shellacking of Fairview (1A, District 6, 0-3). Carter Parsons had quite a game against Fairview. Worthy of some of the country’s finest beef jerky products in our humble estimation.

Stanville, KY: 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 PerformerCarter Parsons (’26), QB from Stanville, Kentucky’s Betsy Layne High School. 

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

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

Carter Parsons only completed 11-passes all game against Fairview High in the Dr. Mike Goble Bowl in Stanville, Kentucky. What would make that achievement award-worthy? How about five (5) of the 11 passes thrown went for TD’s, there were no picks, and Parsons’ threw for 254-yards.

Generally, when one thinks of Carter Parsons, people think of his prowess playing varsity basketball for Betsy Layne. Most of his highlights, found online, are basketball related, Betsy Layne was 19-11 last season, and Parsons was among the leaders in both scoring and rebounds. Associating Parsons with basketball is not completely off-line.

We would put to you that Parsons is a better football player than he is in basketball. So far this season, the sophomore QB has thrown for 503-yards with a 6:1 TD to INT ratio. Most importantly, the team is undefeated.

Now Parsons had a little help this past Thursday night. Landon Howell (’24) caught four (4) of his 11-passes completed and registered 106-receiving yards and a score. Isaiah Allen (’26) wasn’t too shabby himself as he caught three-passes, two of which were for TD’s.

Against Fairview, Parsons had a completion rate a smidge over 50% (11 for 21). While that is not terrific, it is far from terrible especially in light of his being a sophomore.

Parsons completed 11 of his 21-passing attempts for 254-yards and 5-TD’s against zero thrown INT’s

KHSAA statistical website

On the year, Parsons is completing passes at a smidge over 60% (26 for 43). Such a rating, or anything above 60%, is exceptional at the high school level. Ask any coach you wish.


Betsy Layne travels to Hindman, Kentucky this weekend to play Knott County Central. Knott County is 1-2 on the year with a win over Jenkins its only notch standing between them and “winless.” We believe Betsy Layne will be heavy favorites to run its record to 4-0. We believe Parsons will have another fantastic statistical outing.

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 the competition. Remember, our product is superior and one of a kind; just like Betsy Layne’s, Carter Parsons.
