’25 OL may be the class of his class where he is slotted

This is a player who should be on every recruiting board in Kentucky regardless of level. He is 6’3,” 275-pounds with a 4.33 GPA and a 26 on his ACT. He is a three year starter who consistently grades out as the best HS OL the school has EVER had. He hasn’t allowed a single QB-sack in over two-years worth of starts in spite of the team running a rather pass-happy offense.

Lexington, 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 PerformerBrooks Kerwin, ’25 OL from the Christian Academy in Lexington, Kentucky (LCA). 

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

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

There is no higher praise in the game of football than the praise one garners from his position coach. No body watches the prospect’s film any closer, and knows more about what he is seeing, than the guy who coaches the prospect on a daily basis.

One thing is for certain, Oakley Watkins is pretty sold on Brook Kerwin. Watkins has gone on the record saying, “[Brooks Kerwin] should be on every school’s board as one of the top OL prospects in the 2025 class. [He is a] three year starer who consistently grades out as the best HS OL I’ve ever coached.”

Had Watkins stopped there, we would have still been amazed. However, he didn’t.

Watkins went on to call Kerwin, “…a can’t miss prospect who has started every game the last two years against the top competition while allowing zero QB-sacks…” Watkins went on to relate that Kerwin is a “[t]otal package-relentless, polished, and athletic.”

[Kerwin] grades out as the best HS OL I’ve ever coached

He might as well have called him “Superman.” Had he, we wouldn’t have been the least bit surprised.

The fact of the matter is LCA has played an incredible bevy of competition, particularly in ’23. In that one season, LCA played Bowling Green (5A Champions), Boyle County (4A Champions), Christian Academy-Louisville (3A Champions), Pikeville (1A Champions), and Mayfield (2A Champions).

Had LCA played Trinity High, they would have played the champions of every single classification in Kentucky in one season. Thing is, they would have scheduled the Shamrocks if there had been an agreeable date to play that game.

LCA beat Bowling Green, CAL, Pikeville, while losing to Boyle County and Mighty Mayfield. Not too shabby.

We would like to revisit some of what Kerwin’s position coach had to allow. Hasn’t allowed a QB-sack in two years along the first-team offensive line. Grades out as the best HS OL he has ever coached.

Do these descriptors come even more into focus for all of you reading this article? We thought so.

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 Lexington Christian Academy’s, Brooks Kerwin. 

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!
