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, Big-time offensive lineman (Class of ’22), Holden Stamper from Hustonville, Kentucky who attends Lincoln County High School, wouldn’t it?
Lincoln County is a perennial Class 4A powerhouse program. The Patriots also get down-hill in a hurry in the run-game as they showed the commonwealth in the abbreviated, 2020 pandemic season.
The Patriots, behind their hulking, 290-pounder at tackle, Holden Stamper, ran for 279.4-yards a night and 2,525-yards on the year in 9-games. The Patriots scored 34-rushing TDs a year ago in 348-rushing attempts.
That is finding pay dirt every tenth carry. That is averaging 7.3 or so yards an attempt. The Patriots, in the same district with Wayne County, Knox Central, and Corbin, ain’t exactly strolling down the beach on Friday nights.
Holden Stamper is turning some heads with his play and physical prowess. The fact he has a 4.0 GPA, to go with his on-field aggression and ability, means he will have opportunities to play in college many kids won’t.
Hard to play college football at an elite academic institution where the football staff can’t get you by the admission’s committee. That is true anywhere.
It’s called being a student-athlete. It is listed in that order for a reason.
The word, “student” gets first billing because it should. These are institutions for higher learning, not “meat markets.”
Stamper is listed as 6-2, 290-pounds. We don’t know his height (nor do we care) but the 290-feels just about right.
This kid is a mauler. His first two steps are powerful, heavy, and get the studs in the ground immediately. His elbows are tight, his hands are inside the shoulders, and once he clamps on and your playing DT you are going for a ride my friend. That ride doesn’t stop until you are driven through the ground or the whistle blows.
This kid plays the position with a mean-spirited disposition. As a result, Holden makes plenty of what we term around KPGFootball‘s homes offices as, “turf deposits.”
There are some really fine programs looking at this prospect. Some of these programs have challenging academic curricula and prestigious academic reputations.
This is a kid with a D-1 skill set but the grades, ambition, and intellectual industry to suit his ending up literally anywhere he chooses. Where that is exactly will be fun to monitor. Wherever that ends up being, that program will be getting one tremendous lineman well suited for the college game.
Congratulations to Holden Stamper, Class of ’22, from Lincoln County High School on his selection. 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 Lincoln County’s Holden Stamper.
This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
