There have certainly been a whole bunch of football stars pass through Highlands. Tyus Mccarter is a 6’0,” 160-pound, WR/CB (’25) with plenty of length, speed, and verticality to be another one.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball Senior Scout and Editorial Board Member
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, 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, WR/CB, Tyus Mccarter from Fort Thomas, Kentucky’s Highland High School, wouldn’t it?
A TV sports commentator said if he had to choose a Heisman winner 20 years in the future, he would just pick Notre Dame’s QB. After all, Notre Dame’s QB has won more recognition from the Heisman voters than any other singular position at any singular school.
Well, historically, Ft. Thomas Highlands is the Notre Dame of Kentucky high school football. The program hasn’t been producing up to its usual standard but that has to give at some point one would certainly think.
The Bluebirds have had some amazing talent come across the program threshold. That talent has gone on to great things in college football owing to the wonderful coaching and development it gets “back home.”
It doesn’t take much to forecast Tyus Mccarter will soon number among the program’s former greats. Mccarter has good size at 6’0″ and weighing 160-pounds, especially for a player just finishing the 9th-grade (Class of ’25), and his athleticism and length don’t appear in question from the highlights we saw on his Hudl page from his JV/Freshman efforts.
Mccarter is a prospect we expect to be thoroughly in the mix this coming Fall if not in the starting rotation at WR. We could see him developing into a fine corner too, but he probably won’t play “Iron Man” football at 5A Highlands.
They will need his efforts to right the ship at that proud program. The Bluebird faithful won’t countenance 5-6 seasons, like ’21, for too much longer.
In order to aid his ascendancy, we thought we would ask our friends (and yours) at Mingua Beef Jerky to send him some nourishment and protein. Mingua Beef Jerky agreed with us and 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 Highland High School’s Tyus Mccarter.
