Hudl Highlights

Somerset, 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 PerformerAustyn Lawless, ’27 LB from Somerset High School in Somerset, Kentucky. 

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

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

Not many people expect much of a contribution from a freshman, second level defender. Particularly one playing for one of the better programs in 2A.

It wasn’t too long ago the Briar Jumpers were toting the championship hardware from off of Kroger Field in Lexington, KY (2019). The Baddest Bunnies in the Briar Patch were NOT in Lexington this year, but they won 10-games and lost in the semifinals against an Owensboro Catholic team which had the football and a chance to win against Mayfield with about two and a half minutes remaining in that ballgame.

Translation: Somerset is back y’all. Players the ilk of Lawless comprise a major reason why.

Somerset is back; players like Lawless are why

Friday Night Fletch

Lawless recorded 101-tackles in ’23, registered 16-TFLs, and tallied six (6) QB-sacks. Lawless additionally forced a pair of fumbles while recovering one.

That is quite a stat-sheet for a freshman. Of course, Lawless was no ordinary freshman, not even anatomically.

Lawless is 6’0,” and weighs 200-pounds. His is the type frame which appears likely to lengthen and thicken considerably as he continues to age and mature.

Lawless was a highly decorated player coming from the middle school ranks. Lawless’s performance in his inaugural season did nothing to dampen enthusiasm for his prospects.

His most impressive feat?

We see Lawless playing on Saturdays. We think it likely he will start getting some snaps offensively as soon as this coming Fall.

Lawless is listed as a TE on the roster, in addition to his primary deployment of LB. Lawless will continue on at LB as his production over the course of ’23 indicates his alignment, along the defensive second level, continues to appear quintessential. Look for Lawless to start getting offensive targets across the middle for the Briar Jumpers as ’24 unfolds.

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 Somerset’s, Austyn Lawless
