The fact of Brady Hensley’s being among Kentucky’s very finest football players in its class of ’24 cannot be seriously disputed. This kid would be similarly considered even were he, primarily, a defender. The fact he did what he did on both sides of the football in ’21, and in the 6A classification; well, that is noteworthy, putting it mildly.Fletcher W.

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.
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.
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 ’24, RB/SS, Brady Hensley from Richmond’s Madison Central High School, wouldn’t it?
Madison Central plays “big boy” football. That is what Kentucky’s 6A classification is commonly called.
Not only do the Indians play “big boy” football but they made it to the 6A semis a year ago and have many important pieces returning. Central was one of those teams whose performance just kept improving as the year progressed. Similar improvement over the course of the ’22 season could spell a trip to Lexington.
Brady Hensley had a tremendous sophomore season. The 6’0,” 200-pounder played RB on offense, and unlike so many other performers on prestigious 6A programs, also played a meaningful role defensively.
Offensively, Hensley was the ball club’s most active rusher (225-carries), most productive ground gainer (1,804-yards), and leading scorer (31-rushing TDs, 2-receiving TDs, 1 “scoop and score,” and 2-two-point conversions for 208-points or 16-points a night). Defensively, the SS registered 41-tackles, a TFL, a FF, and a pair of FRs.
Hensley is being heavily recruited by the homesteading EKU Colonels. Additionally Hensley has both FBS and FCS D-1s clamoring for his favor and attention. There is no telling where this All-Stater will ultimately land but his 4.0 GPA will leave his options wide open.
Mingua Beef Jerky agreed this young man could use a bolt of protein and the T-shirt. They volunteered to send him a package 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 Madison Central High School’s Brady Hensley.
