Breathitt’s Lane Weddle, 2021, is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @KHSAAFootball

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 and never chopped or formed like other brands, make our products superior and one of a kind. That would make our products similar to this week’s Protein Packed Performer of the Week, Lane Weddle (2021) from Kentucky’s Breathitt High School, wouldn’t it? 

Lane Weddle (2021), has been widely referred to as the Forrest Gump of Kentucky high school football. This nickname is in recognition of the many ways he impacts a football game.

Well, the senior “do-it-all, Jack of All Trades” turned in another impressive performance for the Breathitt Bobcats this past Friday night in the District 7 Championship game. We will begin with his more conventional contributions which were considerable, to put it mildly.

Weddle had 23 carries for 222 yards, 3 rushing TDs, 2 receptions for 26-yards, an interception, and converted 5 of his 6 PATs. Isn’t that a mouthful?

While all of that was breath-taking, it falls short of fully encapsulating how many ways Weddle impacted Friday night’s game with Leslie County. In addition to all of the above, we would like to talk about one of his kick-offs in the second-half which may have put the game out of the Eagle’s reach.

With the game very much still in contention, former writer for KPGFootball, member of KPGFootball’s editorial board, in his capacity as the Editor-in-chief for the Jackson Times-Voice‘s digital and print newspapers, Fletcher Long, wrote the following about that kickoff…

“Weddle’s best play of the night probably went unnoticed by the casual fan. Remember his back-spinning, arching, sand-wedge of a kickoff which hit a foot from the in-line and sucked back onto the field of play like a perfectly scotched short-iron at Amen Corner? Remember, it was the football, riddled with English, which couldn’t be handled and resulted in a Breathitt possession deep in Leslie territory. The possession (netted from Leslie’s inability to handle that football)…would see the end zone and end…Leslie’s plucky upset bid?” Long, Fletcher; Breathitt, Kings of District 7; link; Jackson Times-Voice (Nolan Paper Group).

Well said, Mr. Long. That Lane Weddle sure is valuable to a high school football team, wouldn’t you agree?

Congratulations to Lane Weddle, Class of 2021, from Breathitt High School in Jackson, Kentucky for being selected the Mingua Beef Jerky Company’Protein-packed Performer of the Week. Join us next week as the Mingua Beef Jerky Company recognizes another one of a kind performer and performance similar in grandeur to the one we recognized today.

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 Lane Weddle.

This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
