Makers of the World's Finest Jerky Products

Entering ‘Championship Weekend;’ no one is hotter than Corbin’s Kade Elam (’25)

We have talked plenty about guys who are just tremendous football players. Well, Corbin’s Kade Elam is a superstar in three separate sports at the high school (HS) level and is reportedly committed to play baseball for the Louisville Cardinals. Does this make him a fine HS QB too? We can’t affirm there being a causal connection between the two; but we can affirm Mr. Elam is a fine HS QB.

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 ’25, QB, Kade Elam, from Corbin, Kentucky’s Corbin High, wouldn’t it? 

Kade Elam is a three-sport superstar in high school and is the functional QB in all three. In baseball, where the ’25 prospect has already committed to the University of Louisville, Elam is a SS. Shortstops are known as the QB’s of the infield.

In basketball, Elam plays PG. Point guards are referenced as being either “floor generals” or the QB’s of the hardwood.

In football, where references are often just as apt and descriptive, Elam is Corbin’s QB-1; a position routinely called the “field general” of an offense. Elam’s play this season may make him a candidate to becoming KHSAA’s “QB-1.”

In the semis, last Friday night, Elam was 7 for 10 for 213-yards passing and 4-TD’s against Franklin County in leading his team to a 49-35 win and a berth in the title game. The Redhounds drew Boyle County for the title.

Boyle County’s Rebels are vying for a third straight championship at the 4A level. Elam and his crew are facing an unenviable task.

For the season, Elam has completed 146 of 202 passing attempts for 2,306-yards through the air with 31-TD’s against only 3-picks. He has rushed from scrimmage for close to 500-yards (476) and scored 12-TD’s in his 67-carries.

For Corbin to finish this season off the right way, the Redhounds will need exceptional play from its QB, it’s field-general, the shortstop of its offense. If the Redounds are to hoist the championship trophy, they will need a very Elam-like performance out of the one guy on whom the team has grown to rely.
