Makers of the World's finest beef jerky products

Mountain ’23 RB and teammates have restored BlackCat program to prominence

Ethan Jarvis is standing at around 1,000 yards rushing in little more than 100-carries at the midway point of the season. Most importantly, Prestonsburg is sitting at 6-0 and looking right invincible. Enjoy this look at a mountain RB who is absolutely tearing it apart this season, and just in the nick of time too.

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, Class of ’23, RB, Ethan Jarvis from Floyd County, Kentucky’s Prestonsburg High, wouldn’t it? 

Ethan Jarvis has helped restore a once proud program to mountain prominence.

Ethan Jarvis has helped restore a once proud program to mountain prominence. The Blackcats from Prestonsburg High are flying high once more.

Jarvis, through six games, is sitting around 1,000 yards rushing and is averaging nearly two and a half-TD’s rushing per contest. Jarvis gains around 165-yards per night and is also second on the team in receptions, yards receiving, and TD’s receiving.

Jarvis leads his team in offensive scoring and finds the time to contribute on defense. Jarvis is tied for the club lead in fumbles recovered in addition to being among the leaders in TFL’s and PBU’s (passes broken up).

It is hard to pigeon hole Jarvis’s exact physical dimensions. We have included a picture of Jarvis with his teammate Nate Porter (No. 71).

Our reasoning for doing this is for purposes of “scale.” We know Porter’s physical dimensions, he is 6’4,” 280-pounds and quite the college prospect in his own right. We believe this puts Jarvis in the 6’1″-6’2″ range and weighing in the neighborhood of 200-pounds.

We believe…Jarvis [is] in the 6’1″-6’2″ range and weigh[s] in the neighborhood of 200-pounds.

Size aside, and Jarvis has looked like a giant for the Blackcats this season, Jarvis is plenty big enough to play college football at various different levels of competition and at many different positions either on offense or defense. For now though, we are enjoying watching him lead Prestonsburg onward toward its best regular season in quite some time as a guy who just might be the very best RB in all of the Appalachia mountains.

Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and accomplished ’23 RB could use a bolt of protein. The company volunteered to send him some straight away. 

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 Prestonsburg High’s Ethan Jarvis.

This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT and don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
