Brandon Hollis is a guy whose potential is just now being fully tapped. To say this kid is an athlete is a bit of an understatement. He is a college level DB who can contribute in multiple phases of a high school football game and maybe even a college level game too. He has speed and speed is a killer and a thriller on a football field.Fletcher W. Long, Senior Scout and member of the KPGFootball Editorial Board
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, Class of ’23, DB/ATH, Brandon Hollis from Hodgenville, Kentucky’s LaRue County High School, wouldn’t it?
Hollis has the frame one covets especially for the positions where he gets most usually deployed. Hollis is a 6’2,” 174-pounder who thrives both on the football field and in the classroom (3.5 GPA).
Last season, Hollis had 32-tackles and was tied for the ball club lead in interceptions. This was sufficiently proficient to make the All-Area team in ’21 at DB.
Hollis was a steady, if not spectacular, contributor on the offensive side of the ball too. He carried the football 43-times for 167-yards and 2-TDs while catching 4-balls for 117-yards receiving.
A cursory viewing of his work on the Track team clearly defines why he is both versatile and productive. Hollis has been timed at 11.5-seconds in the 100m and 24.03 in the 200m. Both of those times are fully automated and go on the starter’s pistol.
As for his 40-yard dash time, which is on the athlete’s first motion, he is equally impressive. Hollis has been timed as law as 4.47-seconds, at 40-yards, hand-timed. For a kid with his height (6’2″) and length mostly deployed at corner, that is right down the sweet spot for what colleges covet for the position on their rosters.
We don’t think there is even a question. This kid is s future Saturday player, it is just a matter of where and at what level of competition.
We know this…LaRue County will need exceptional effort form Hollis and teammates to get out of the 5-7 rut in which it found itself in ’21. We believe ’22 will be vastly different for the Hawks even with their star QB transferring, enrolling, and now playing for Lexington Christian Academy.
Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and exceptionally versatile ’23 player, and rising senior, could use a bolt of protein. The company volunteered to send him some straight away.
Join us next week as we honor another worthy player. 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 LaRue County High School’s Brandon Hollis.
This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT and don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
