Makers of the world's finest all-beef jerky products. #Savortheflavor

’24 FB led team to a 9-3 finish & a 1-point loss to Lex. Cath. from a 10-win campaign…

Jacob Fryman was selected, by News Radio 840 WHAS & KPGFootball, the best fullback in the large school classifications (4A, 5A, & 6A) of the KHSAA. He is a thick-framed kid who has plenty of power, strength, explosion, speed, and “quicks.” He was effective carrying the football, swinging out of the backfield in the passing game, and lead blocking on power run sets or pass setting in the air attack. In short, he can do it all.

Georgetown, 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 PerformerJacob Fryman, ’24 FB from Scott County High School in Georgetown, Kentucky.

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

We love fullbacks at KPGFootball. When putting together our Large (or Big) School All-State Football Team in a collaboration with News Radio 840 WHAS, we learned the “radio guys” loved fullbacks as much as we.

Naturally, when given the opportunity, we picked fullbacks for both of our teams. Our small school FB was Hopkins County Central’s Calil McNary. For reasons which will soon crystallize, Jacob Fryman was our large-school selection and for many of the same reasons we liked McNary.

Fullbacks have to have the prowess of a TE or OL and the nimbleness of a slot WR and/or TE. A good fullback is called upon to gain yardage from scrimmage, swing out of the backfield and be a weapon in the passing game, lead the power run game, and to pass protect when his number isn’t called.

You will find, Fryman checked all the boxes. We feel confident to proclaim Fryman the definitive player at the fullback position in 4A, 5A, & 6A, if not the entire commonwealth.

Fryman gained 836-yards rushing this year in Scott County’s 12-games. He carried the football 137 times, averaging 6.1-yards per rushing attempt, and scoring a TD over the ground every 8th-carry.

Allow us to clue you in on a little something, ordinary FBs don’t peel off over 6-yards a carry and don’t generally score 17-rushing TDs in 12-games. They get the tough yards. The FB’s down and distance is 3rd and one with everybody in the run-box knowing what’s coming.

Fryman is a guy who understands what it takes to succeed. He is fond of pointing out there are three important goals which much be attained for success to be found by any player on any athletic field; confidence, hard work, and determination.

Fryman has clearly embodied these attributes. His production, and the team’s successes, demonstrate his not just striving for but achieving all three of these goals.

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 Scott County’s, Jacob Fryman. 

This is Friday Night Fletch reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron and reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE. Don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
