Makers of the World's Finest Jerky Products

’31 dual-threat QB from Pikeville among the finest in the nation as his position

This QB is super competitive and is very difficult to contain within the pocket as he is able to work himself away from backfield traffic. That’s just QB Hitlist‘s analysis. This 5’1,” 80-pound phenom, entering the 5th-grade, is already top of the list among KY, ’31 QB-prospects.

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.  

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, Kade Johnson, QB from Pikeville, Kentucky, the top Kentucky dual-threat in the 2031 graduating class.

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

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

Kade Johnson plays football for Pikeville’s 5th-grade team and we feel, for some in the commonwealth, that may need a bit of explaining. There are small towns, across Kentucky, who have little league programs overseen by the HS HFC and where the kids run the same schemes as the high schools.

Kade Johnson Highlights

Those include towns like Princeton, Jackson (Breathitt County), Pikeville, Mayfield, Ft. Mitchell (Beechwood), and others; where the high school football generally benefits greatly from the comity. Kade Johnson plays for the Pikeville 5th-grade team. Pikeville High is THE ELITE program in Kentucky as its level of competition.

Kade Johnson is 5’1,” and weighs 80-pounds. He is presently ranked number seven (7) nationally among dual-threat QB’s in the graduating class of 2031 and tops the rankings in the same class among Kentucky dual-threat, signal callers.

A mobile QB who’s able to work himself away from traffic

QB Hitlist

This is a nationally ranked prospect who has been evaluated by a nationally disseminated, rankings service. QB Hitlist has plenty to day about its nationally ranked QB.

“This QB is super competitive who’ll continue to add to his game with more reps. Very difficult to contain within the pocket. A mobile QB who’s able to work himself away from traffic.” That constitutes high praise in-deed.

Though only entering the 5th-grade, Johnson has proven himself wise beyond his years in the classroom and on the football field. Johnson reports a 4.0 GPA to go along with his ever increasing playing credentials.

This is a kid to watch going forward. Should he continue to put in the work, and provided the Lord Almighty bestows on him the requisite physical frame, you’re looking at a leading “Mr. Football” candidate in his graduating class.

For now, we are left anticipating what Johnson will do to his district this coming season and whether he can put the Panthers in title contention at its level of play. Johnson is setting the pace presently. If his teammates pick up the same pace, these Panthers may be tough outs!

Join us next week as we return to honor another weekly prize winner. Until then, pop some Mingua Beef Jerky in your mouth and savor the quality and flavor which sets it apart from the competition. Remember, our product is superior and one of a kind; just like Pike County’s, Kade Johnson. 

This is Fletcher W. Long reporting (on his birthday) for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE and don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
