Makers of the World's Finest Jerky Products

’23 ‘Do It All’ senior will be sorely missed next season by his Bomber squad!

Talk about your players lending production to a roster, Jerrico Wilson (ATH, ’23) was a ‘do it all’ for his Bombers this past season. There just couldn’t have been any one kid in Kentucky more important to his team this past season than Jerrico Wilson was to the Ballard Memorial ball club.

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.            

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

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

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, Athlete, Jerrico Wilson, from Barlow, Kentucky’s Ballard Memorial High, wouldn’t it? 

There are good players on literally every roster competing in football from across this great commonwealth of ours. Every team has a star, every team has a player who would be a first-string, valuable player on many other rosters aside from the one on which this kids presently toils.

Ballard Memorial is no different. Sure, the Bombers have struggled and sure, they aren’t where they can be and want to be as either a school or football program, but the Bombers have at least one player many teams in the area would love to have playing for them.

The Bombers have struggled…but the Bombers have at least one player many teams in the area would love to have…

That kid’s name is Jerrico Wilson. It is hard to imagine any one kid, on any one roster, could have had an equal impact to that of Wilson this past season.

Wilson led the team in rushing (892-yards on 105-rushes from scrimmage). Wilson led the team in receptions (27) and yards receiving (344). Wilson led the team in scoring (60-points). Get this; none of Wilson’s nine (9)TD’s were scored conventionally (3-two point conversions, 9-TD’s scored neither rushing nor receiving).

Wilson was second on the team in passing. Wilson was among the team leaders in tackles and was first in INT’s.

If Wilson wasn’t doing it this season for the Bombers, it was usually left undone.

Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and accomplished ’23 Athlete 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 Ballard Memorial’s Jerrico Wilson.

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 #SavorTheFlavor!
