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 offensive center, Carter Guillaume from Louisville, Kentucky’s St. Xavier High School, wouldn’t it?
Carter Gulliaume appears to us to be the heir apparent to William Long (’21) as the high school game’s premier player at the center position. Long, now at Centre College, was formerly a 3-time AP first-team All-stater at the offensive center position and is playing college football with Carter’s brother, Parker.
William Long formerly won this award. Carter’s brother Parker was a former winner of the Revolutionary Player of the Week awarded by the Independence Bank. Carter now winning the Protein-packed Player of the Week award from the Mingua Beef Jerky Company constitutes the “hat trick” if this were hockey.
Will the Colonels pull the hat trick and get a pledge from Carter Guillaume like they did from William and Parker? May be too soon to call. We do know Centre College would love it if they did.
Guillaume is just a ’24 prospect. Youth aside, he has the goods as salty, old football coaches are fond of saying. Guillaume is a mauler inside on the Tigers’ offensive line at the keystone position along any front.
Friday night, the commonwealth’s best offensive center got the opportunity to showcase his skills in the commonwealth’s marquee game, St. Xavier versus Trinity. No one cheering on the Tigers left disappointed.
An offensive center doesn’t get the same opportunities to register in the stat book as the more ballyhooed skills. However, when some key skills have huge nights, the players, coaches, and sophisticated fans know where some of the praise should land.
Against Trinity, Jack Sivori (’22) had a huge night at the best time for any player from St. Xavier to shine. Sivori rushed it 27-times, gaining 153-yards with 3-rushing TDs.
Justin Walsh (’22) carried it 16-times for 117-yards and a score on his own. On the night, Coach Kevin Wallace’s guys gained 303-yards over the ground with 5-rushing TDs.
Looks like it pays to have Kentucky’s best offensive center in Carter Guillaume (’24) anchoring the offensive front. Word is he wrestles pretty darn well too.
Mingua Beef Jerky enjoys distinguishing and then rewarding, publicizing, and feeding young men who lend considerable value to the team. With the play witnessed by one of “our guys” this past Friday night, we thought Carter Guillaume could use some nourishment and maybe a sweet T-shirt!
For the T-shirt and the bolt of protein, we asked our friends at Mingua Beef Jerky to send him some. Like always, they were thrilled to oblige.
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 St. Xavier High School’s Carter Guillaume.
This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
