#Isaac Dixon from @BelfryFootball1 is the @minguabeefjery “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @PrepSpin, @KyHighFootball, @1776Bank

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, Isaac Dixon, RB/DB, from Belfry, Kentucky, wouldn’t it? 

It isn’t everyday the Protein-packed Performer of the Week will be a running back averaging over 20-yards per rushing attempt and scoring a TD between every third and fourth carry with his team halfway through its season. Friday night was just another remarkable performance for a guy who many consider the most explosive and perhaps fastest member of the graduating class of 2021 Kentucky-wide. 

Dixon, who has been timed in the 100-meter in 10.67-seconds, and runs the 400 meter in 56-seconds, is someone who figures to clip-off 40-yards in the 4.4’s and on the low end of that number, decimally. According to the reddit.com, and applying the conversion formula to a 100-meter time, a guy running a 10.64 is running the 40 in 4.4-seconds flat. A 10.95-second 100-meter time translates to a 4.5-second flat forty. So, calling him a 4.4-flat, in light of his registered track time in the 100-meter, (which is a laser time, by the way) means Dixon is close to a laser-timed 4.4 flat.

That is flying. No wonder he’s killing it this and every year.

Friday night, against Floyd Central, Dixon had 8-carries, 4 of which he took to the house, for 251-yards. Behind Dixon’s fine play, his Pirates defeated Floyd Central 48-18. On the year, Dixon has carried it 43-times for 879-yards and 12-rushing TDs in only 4 games. 

For the statisticians among you, that is nearly 20.5-yards per carry on 10.75-carries a night. He’s scoring a TD every 3.6 (or so) carries. If he continues on at the present pace, he will obliterate the Kentucky record for yards per carry over a season, assuming he gets over 75-carries which is required for record recognition.

The record is presently held by Taveon Hunter. He, like Dixon, played for Belfry.

Congratulations to Isaac Dixon, Class of 2021, from Belfry High School in Belfry, Kentucky for being selected the Mingua Beef Jerky Company’s Protein-packed Performer of the Week. Join us next week as the Mingua Beef Jerky Company recognizes another, one of a kind performer.

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 Belfry’s Isaac Dixon.

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