@DBoner61 from @FootballJCHS is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @MaxPreps

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 ’23, OC/DL, Dylan Boner from Paintsville, Kentucky’s Johnson Central High School, wouldn’t it?  

Everyone in Kentucky knows exactly what Johnson Central High School is going to do each and every single Friday night. The Eagles are going to get down hill and run the football right at you.

The Pancake Brigade, the arrow is pointing out its anchor, Dylan Boner (No. 61)

Still, with the absence of even the slightest mystery, and no matter how many defenders the opponent can stuff in the run box; no one is able to stop the Eagles from doing exactly what it is very well known they are going to do. There has to be a reason for this.

The reason is a group of men called the “Pancake Brigade.” The Pancake Brigade is what the Eagles of Johnson Central call their offensive line. Today’s recipient is the central cog in that particular chain.

Dylan Boner is anchored in the smack-dab middle of the Pancake Brigade. How effective are they?

Well, consider they just played Franklin County in the Class 4A semifinals. Consider that, with only four teams left standing, Franklin County has a plenty good football team with plenty good players.

Consider that Zack McCoart (’25) gained 199-yards on 13-carries and scored 3-TDs for the Eagles against Franklin County. Consider that Chase Price (’23) carried it 12-times for 105-yards and 2-TDs. Consider that the entire team rang up 428-yards rushing and 6-rushing TDs in 43-carries in route to a 42-24 pasting of the “Flyers” and a berth in the Class 4A Title game against Boyle County this coming weekend on Kroger Field.

Wouldn’t you credit an offensive front for that level of production against that level of competition? Wouldn’t you figure the cornerstone of such a group would have to be a wonderfully skilled and adept player?

Not too surprisingly we agree with you. Now it may be easier to see just why Dylan Boner is winning the jerky this week!

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 Johnson Central High School’s big OC, Dylan Boner.
