’26 RB from Louisville leading his team to seasonal perfection
Gerian Traynor is a 5’11,” 155-pound sophomore (’26) running back performing spectacularly for a team which knows a little something about dealing with adversity. Still, the Crimsons sit 5-0, with quality wins over Central Hardin, South Warren, and Taft High School (OH) and with a pivotal, upcoming matchup with Christian Academy-Louisville (CAL). Tryanor gained 157-yards and scored three (3) rushing TD’s Friday night in its winner over one of the premier, 5A programs in Kentucky. Truth is, he’s been doing it all year.HB Lyon, Chief Scout, KPGFootball
Louisville, 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 Performer, Gerian Traynor, a ’26 RB from Louisville, Kentucky’s duPont Manual High School.
Gerian Traynor had a really terrific game last Friday night against a terrific opponent. The Crimsons defeated the South Warren Spartans, 38-35 and get ready to play the Christian Academy-Louisville this week.
Traynor is rising. Friday night, the diminutive (5’11,” 155-pounds) back gained 157-yards rushing and scored three (3) TD’s in duPont Manual’s 38-35 win over South Warren. Traynor led his team in scoring on a night the Crimsons would need every one of his 18-points.
Looking at the season, as a whole, with the Crimsons sitting 5-0, Traynor has been “doing his thing” all year. Traynor has gained 491-yards rushing in five (5)-games, scored eight (8) rushing TD’s, and has led his team scoring 9.6 points per outing.
The Crimsons have a real challenge this coming Friday. They will travel, cross-town, to play one of Kentucky’s very top teams regardless of that team’s being classified as “3A.”
CAL is 4-1. Its only blemish was 14-12 cliffhanger it dropped to Lexington Christian-Academy. CAL has beaten Owensboro (5A), Ryle (6A), North Hardin (6A), and a tough 6A, Indiana opponent in New Albany High.
If you think it will “shake up” CAL to have to play 6A duPont Manual, you better rethink it. If you think the Crimsons will be “shaken up” by the hostile environment awaiting them on CAL’s campus, you might rethink that too.
Heck, for all the Crimson care, it might as well rain. They seem to perform very well dealing with that particular element.
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 duPont Manual’s, Gerian Traynor.
This is Fletcher W. Long reporting (on his birthday) for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE and don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
