@ashton_adams14 from @MasonCoFootball is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @PrepSpin @CentreFootball @MaxPreps @1776Bank

Mingua Beef Jerky appears to really appreciate versatility. Maybe that is the reason its superior product comes in a variety of forms and in many different delicious flavors. Ashton Adams reminds us of a guy who won this prestigious award for his play in ’20, Breathitt’s Lane Weddle. Adams adds so much production and value to his roster and lineup. Colleges are taking notice. Enjoy this feature. HB.

This week’s “Revolutionary Player of the Week” is St. Xavier’s Micah Carter. The 6-5, 250-pounder is one of Kentucky’s very best at his position in either the ’23 class or any other. He already has an impressive list of offers and won the Defensive MVP of the EKU Big Man Challenge this past Saturday. Congratulations to Carter and join us again a week from today when we award this to another fine recipient. HB.

@Tommyrosenbarg1 (Tommy Rosenbarger) from @StXTigersFB is this week’s @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer. @g_mcpeek @EKUWWells @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

We were pleased to attend the Eastern Kentucky University Seven on Seven and Big Man Challenge this past Saturday in Richmond, Kentucky. We were so thrilled to get to attend we sent two guys as Fletcher Long and I rode together. We are awarding the OL MVP this award today and this Friday the Defensive MVP will be the “Revolutionary Player of the Week” for Independence Bank. The event was worthy of sweeping the weekly awards. It was just that good. Enjoy this feature and get yourself some of the world’s finest beef jerky today! HB.

@ArmonTucker from @TrinityHSFB is this week’s @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. @trinitysports @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

Trinity has before complained we don’t cover them sufficiently. We would beg to differ as we have feature quite a few of its primetime players through the years but we probably don’t write about Kentucky’s most talented roster as much as we could. Of course, we can’t just perpetually feature one team, unless their hiring. Anyway, this kid here will play big-time, college football because of his speed, regardless of what he does or doesn’t do on the football field. Good thing he is good on the football field too. Enjoy the feature and join us next week as we award this to another worthy player. HB.

@jake_nashty (Jake Nash), c/o ’22, from @LexCathFootball is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @PrepSpin @1776Bank @KyHighFootball

We have made it no secret we enjoy publicizing the players who rarely get any publicity, the offensive linemen across Kentucky. Well, if I were putting together a line of scrimmage from all of the linemen across the commonwealth of Kentucky to play a football game, the Big Nashty would be prominently discussed as a starter on this line. Congratulations to him on winning this week’s award and join us next week as we award this to another outstanding player from across Kentucky. HB.

Jack Duncan from @Football_Hornet is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week! @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

This week’s Revolutionary Player is Jack Duncan from Hancock County. This kid went about his business in ’20 and turned himself into the premier MLB in 2A football on his end of the commonwealth. Will he have a big ’21. Will he ever! Enjoy the feature and join us a week from today when we award this distinction to another worthy recipient. HB.

@jaylifts_ (Jalen Dunnavan) from @NBEagles_Fball is this week’s @minguabeefjerky “Protein-Packed Performer of the Week.” @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin

When people ask us what we cover during the offseason, as we are strictly a football magazine, we tell them there is lots of stuff to cover offseason. Sevens, Track & Field, baseball, Powerlifting, all of these sports have football players starring in them as well as on the gridiron. Today we are giving some beef jerky to a phenomenal talent but on the gridiron and in the weight room. Congratulations to Jalen Dunnaven from North Bullitt High School on his incredible feats accomplished at this past weekend’s Kentucky Push-Pull Powerlifting Championships. Join us next week as we reward and identify another incredible high school gridiron star. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@c_pennington10 from @lexsayrefb is this week’s @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @sayreschool

His is one of the most recognized names in Kentucky football. Largely because his dad, Chad Pennington, who is also the head football coach of the Sayre’s program, played 10-years in the NFL, was a Heisman Trophy finalist for Marshall’s Thundering Herd, and was drafted 18th-overall, as the first QB in the 2000 NFL draft. However, his son’s ability to play the same position is drawing quite a few apt comparisons. Enjoy this look at a feature about the son and not the dad and join us again next week as we feature another outstanding candidate. HB.

@TylerMo21734318 (Tyler Moore), Class of ’22 from @PurplesFootball is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @CoachSpader

High School football has always had undersized, over-achievers glorified for what they can contribute to their high school football teams in front of the hometown fans. Tyler Moore is a slightly undersized kid, frame-wise, for where the Purple play him but his production is nothing short of D-1. This kid would be a brilliant pick-up for quite a few in-Kentucky, college programs. He’s our kind of guy because he gets the absolute most out of every gift the good Lord game him. This is what makes him our Revolutionary Player of the Week. Congratulations!

@Zaynehatfield7 from @BelfryFootball1 is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @CraigYeast @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

We thought we would travel east this week and recognize a guy who is among the very best in the ’22 class playing the defense’s 3rd-level. This guy here already has an offer from Kentucky Wesleyan and he is far from through fielding offers. Enjoy reading about one of the Belfry Pirates favorite residents on Pond Creek. Join us next week when we award some more of Kentucky’s finest beef jerky to another worthy recipient. HB.
