’25 QB transferred from Glasgow to Adair County for his upcoming senior season

Easton Jessie was thought of as one of the premier dual-threat QBs at Glasgow High a year ago. The “Scotties” were 9-3 with him at the helm and he scratched out 27-TDs running and passing as a junior. How good was Jessie? Good enough the University of Toledo’s Rockets have already offered him a Division I, FBS ride to play QB for them in the near future. First, Jessie has to exhaust his HS eligibility and he has elected to do that at Adair County High for Coach Steve Stonebraker. This is such good fortune for Stonebraker, we nearly sent the prize package to him.

Columbia, 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 Performer, Easton Jessie, ’25 QB from Adair County High School in Columbia, Kentucky. 

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

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua Beef Jerky products

Easton Jessie is among the better kept secrets in the Bluegrass among high school football stars. This is particularly true since he happens to play QB for the Indians now while having played for the Scotties a year ago.

Up unit the close of the ’23 season, Jessie was QB-1 at Glasgow High, one of the more successful and storied programs in Kentucky history at its level of play. With Jessie under center, the “Scotties” were 9-3 in ’23.

Adair County was 7-4 in ’23 without Jessie

Now Adair County was 7-4 without Jessie in ’23. When last we saw the Indians, they were going, toe to toe, with Union County’s Braves in a battle of the reservations. Union County, similar to Glasgow High, tends to flex somewhat at its level of play.

Jessie was fantastic in ’23. The ’25 dual-threat, already sporting an offer to play for the University of Toledo, completed 131 of his 209 passing attempts for 2,164-yards with 21-TDs against only three (3) thrown INTs. Jessie carried the football 107-times for 497-yards with 6-TDs rushing.

All told, Jessie accounted for 27-TDs and was 5th on the team in scoring, even though his 21-TDs passing were credited, point wise, to the receivers or pass-catchers on the “other end” of his throws. Such is the life of a QB.

Jessie is 6’2,” and weighs 200-pounds. He has a fluid sequence, is accurate, and possesses a high football IQ.

He’s transferring out of Glasgow was a tough blow for the Scotties. His landing on Adair County’s roster, ready to compete, for the starter’s snaps in Columbia, Kentucky almost won Coach Stonebraker some beef jerky.

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 Adair County High’s, Easton Jessie.
