’24 “power back” sets career marks on Perdue Field in Cadiz

We picked him to the KPGFootball, All-State, first-team after ’22 at FB because he was [and still is] the definitive player at that position in Kentucky at any level. “McNary on the Carry” thrilled us again, Friday Night, in Cadiz, Kentucky when he broke Andy Cook’s record for career yardage. McNary also now holds the mark for career TD’s scored and career carries. His game against Trigg, standing alone, was a “jerky worthy” performance. The career marks he now holds makes this question not even close.

Morton’s Gap, 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 PerformerCalil McNary, a ’24 FB, who plays for Mortons Gap, Kentucky’s Hopkins County Central.

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

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

Hopkins County Central and Trigg County played a loser reports to basketball practice match in Cadiz, Kentucky this past Friday night on Perdue Field. Central showed it isn’t quite done with football.

As part of a 456-yard, offensive explosion the Storm, behind 22-carries and 167-yards rushing with three (3)-TD’s from its senior FB, Calil McNary, placed a “40-14” piece on the Perdue Field scoreboard. The win over Trigg was significant owing to the fact, entering the game, The Storm had not beaten the Wildcats since 2008. Counting the prior win coupled with this past Friday, The Storm has now beaten Trigg only two times in series history.

In addition to the prodigious rushing effort, McNary swung out of the backfield, grabbed an Isaac Manning pass, and took it 39-yards. In total, the senior registered over 200-yards of “total offense” on the evening.

“McNary on the Carry” is now the career leader in rushing attempts, rushing TD’s, and all-time rushing yards; a mark where he had to eclipse Andy Cook (below pictured), a former Storm great. According to Coach Mike Evans, offensive coordinator, “Cook set that mark when I was in middle school.”

On the year, over the team’s eight ball games, McNary has rushed for 755-yards, in 120-carries (6.3 yards per attempt), and scored 10-rushing TD’s. McNary has caught 7-passes, for 102-yards, with two (2)-TD’s receiving.

Central is off this coming week. The Storm will get Hancock County at home on the 20th of October, then travel to Fulton County for the season finale. 

Hancock County is 2-2 in the district, so is Webster, which has already beaten the Storm and owns the “tie break.” McLean is 3-1 and Union is 4-0 in the district respectively and are “in,” by all accounts, regardless of what either does down the stretch. 

On a neutral field, according to cal preps.com, Hancock County 28 (53%), Hopkins County Central 27 (47%)

Basically, should The Storm beat Hancock, Central gets the “last seat” on the playoff buss, and the district’s 4th seed. Hancock would join Trigg, should that occur, in beginning preparations for basketball.

On a neutral site, according to calpreps.com, Hancock County is a one-point favorite with a 53% chance of winning. We figure Morton’s Gap to be worth 4-points. We like Central by three (3). Sorry Hancock, looks like it might be basketball season for you.

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 Hopkins County Central’s Calil “McNary on the Carry.”
