Freshman Malachi Rider from @pths_football is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

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 and never chopped or formed like other brands, make our products superior and one of a kind. That would make our products similar to this week’s Protein Packed Performer of the Week, Malachi Rider (2024) from Kentucky’s Paducah Tilghman High School, wouldn’t it? 


Talk about having a big night, Malachi Rider, a freshman, had one for the ages against Trigg County in the Blue Tornado‘s opening round playoff game. Rider carried it 11-times for 274-yards with 4-rushing TDs.

He scored 24 of the team’s 53 total points. The mighty and traditionally rich program ended Trigg County’s season 53-21.

Rider, the leader in the clubhouse for the KPGFootball freshman All-State team at RB, has 727-yards on the year in 73-carries, 8 of which have been for TDs. He has averaged 103.9 yards rushing a night over Paducah’s 7-games.

Rider, defensively, has 19-tackles and a fumble recovery from his LBer slot. Rider, No. 29, is the “real deal,” as people are fond of saying. 

We have seen a trend over the years of freshmen getting to the varsity level quickly with the physical prowess and ability to make considerable contributions once there. We remember a time, not long ago, when a freshman, like Rider, would have little to no chance of seeing the field at a program like Paducah Tilghman, much less carry the team to the second round of the playoffs. It is a real testament to the job being done by Middle School coaches across the commonwealth.

Congratulations to Malachi Rider, Class of 2024, from Paducah Tilghman High School in Paducah, Kentucky for being selected the Mingua Beef Jerky Company’Protein-packed Performer of the Week. Join us next week as the Mingua Beef Jerky Company recognizes another one of a kind performer and performance similar in grandeur to the one we recognized today.

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 Malachi Rider.

This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
