’25 WR/C proving among the very best athletes in Kentucky

Lincoln Acree is a kid who has been featured and has won the Revolutionary Player of the Week previously from Independence Bank. With this award, this week, he has accomplished the KPGFootball “hat trick.” Acree’s performance at the Rivals, Atlanta combine just simply can’t be ignored. Atlanta, GA is a hot bed of southern recruiting and, annually, the very best talent in the South attends that combine. To have a Kentucky kid from Graves County put on the performance he registered is truly special.

Mayfield, KY: 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 PerformerLincoln Acree, ’25 WR/C from Graves County High in Mayfield, Kentucky. 

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

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

We have been featuring athletic versatility this offseason. Today we feature an athlete who may be among the finest athletes in the commonwealth of Kentucky competing in any sport, at any level.

Lincoln Acree reminds me of a story Chris Vaughn from Aspirations Gym told me once. He had a prospect who was shorter than some recruiters like and who went on to stud-out in the SEC. He told me, initially at least, schools were being shy about offering owing to his perceived lack of height and length.

Vaughn got a call from one school who said, “Look, Coach, enough with beating around the bush, how tall is he?

Vaughn replied, “How tall is a 4.4-second forty?” Good point.

Now, at 5’11,” 155-pounds, this Acree kid towers over the kid Vaughn was training. Will he become the SEC-type star as Vaughn’s protégé? Maybe, but time will be the ultimate judge.

We can tell you the following: there haven’t been too many Kentuckians ever drive down to Atlanta, GA to the Rivals combine and do what Acree accomplished a little more than a month ago. Acree’s performance was off the charts.

Acree exceeded (easily) the average time or distance across the board at the Rivals combine in Atlanta, Georgia

Athlete Report, Rivals combine, Atlanta, GA

Acree ran a hand-timed 40-yard dash in 4.417-seconds. The fastest hand-time, forty at the combine, at his position, was 4.412. Acree ran a laser-timed, 4.507-seconds. He was the best at the entire combine on the laser among players at his position (ATH).

Acree shuttled in 4.482, ran the three-cone in 7.787, and broad jumped 119-inches. Just an inch shy of a 10-foot broad jump. That is pretty darned explosive.

Acree beat the average for his position (ATH), across the board, in every single discipline. It shouldn’t be lost on the reader this was the Rivals combine in Atlanta, Georgia!

Lincoln Acree is a guy who has been drawing quite a bit of recruiting attention. Numbers like these will gain him plenty of attention, no matter what he does on the field.

Don’t worry, Acree is a fine performer under the lights. Acree is also a multi-sport star for Graves County, in more than just football.

Better feed this guy some all-beef, hand-cut protein.

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 Graves County High’s, Lincoln Acree. 

This is Friday Night Fletch reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron and reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE. Don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
