@joe_humphreys2 from @DCHS_Football is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @TheOwensboro

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, Class of ’22, QB, Joe Humphreys from Owensboro’s Daviess County High School, wouldn’t it? 

Not everyone who alerts KPGFootball about prospects is a coach, parent, or fan. Sometimes, we get alerted to prospects by other media outlets operating somewhat similarly to us.

That was the case with today’s recipient, Joe Humphreys. We were sent a note by The Owensboro Daily Sports that there was a local superstar not getting a lot of ink. It was sent in the hopes we might do something about that.

We looked into it. You know what? The Owensboro Daily Sports were right on the money.

We can’t bring to a recruit more attention and publicity than awarding that middle or high school player one of our two Players of the Week distinctions. This one here, the Protein-packed Performer of the Week sponsored by Mingua Beef Jerky Company, has fast become among the most coveted distinctions in the commonwealth of Kentucky for middle and high school football players. The shipment of the world’s finest beef jerky product and a T-shirt don’t hurt its perception one bit.

Joe Humphreys is a 6-4, 200-pound QB playing Class 6A, First-District football in a town which also boasts Gavin Wimsatt at Owensboro Senior. Both of these two signal callers are among the very elite QB-prospects across Kentucky in the ’22 class.

Humphreys has been timed in the 40-yard dash around 4.5-flat and short-shuttles in 4.25-seconds. His bench press is 305-pounds and Humphreys reps the high school, combine, rep-weight (185-pounds) 18-repetitions. He squats 365-pounds. He’s a QB?!

Playing in only 7-games in ’20 (because of the pandemic), Humphreys threw for 1,577-yards on 123 completions in 229-attempts (.5371179 completion percentage) with 21-passing TDs and only 5-thrown interceptions. He was the team’s second leading rusher, carrying the football 64-times for 483-yards with 7-TDs scored by way of land.

Remember, these guys aren’t playing a collection of “Joe Slappies” either. This is 6A, Kentucky, high-school football against the likes of which he is accumulating these type statistics.

Humphreys is fresh off an appearance at the WVU (West Virginia University) prospect camp where attendees and fans alike are still abuzz about the performance he delivered. Chris Anderson, who features prospects for the West Virginia site on the 247Sports Network “Tweeted” that Humphreys performance at WVU was “impressive.” Pretty high praise in deed.

We thought, we might work on getting this young man some attention and get him shipped a fabulous T-shirt and a bolt of protein while we were at it. We can handled the publicity part. For the bolt of protein, we decided to ask our friends at Mingua Beef Jerky to send him some.

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 Daviess County’s Joe Humphreys.
