’25 RB can play DB too

Michael Curry Jr. is a 5’10,” 180-pound RB tearing up 5A football across Kentucky. Over his junior year, a year where he suffered injury which held him out of roughly half the season, the ’25 prospect gained 1,124-yards and 8.4 yards per carry, while scoring 17-rushing TDs and leading the team in scoring with 108-points or 15.4-points per ball game. Atherton had a historic season, finishing 11-2 and making it to the Regional Finals where it lost to the Red Devils from Owensboro. Curry is back in ’24 for one more go-around and the Atherton Ravens promise to figure in the 5A KY-wide title hunt again next season.

Hudl Highlights

Louisville, 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 PerformerMichael Curry Jr., ’25 RB/DB from Atherton High School in Louisville, Kentucky.

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

Michael Curry personifies one of his coach’s favorite sayings. Coach Anthony White, the reigning Louisville Football Coach’s Association COY, loves to say know a guy when you see a guy.

Well, Michael Curry Jr., a ’25 RB/DB for The Big A-Train, is certainly A guy. So is Coach White. Game recognizes game as the kids say.

Michael Curry, in only 7-games, gained 1,124-yards and scored 17-TDs. Curry averaged 8.4 ypc (yards per carry) and 161-yards per outing.

The name of the game is “scoring.” Curry is doing very well in the name of the game.

Curry scored 108-points in his seven (7) games this past season. For the mathematically inclined, that works out to 15.4-points per.

KHSAA statistical website

Curry has an enviable frame for where he is primarily aligned. Curry is 5’10,” and carries a well proportioned 185-pounds thereon. He was among the top ground gainers in the KHSAA a season ago and the top ground gainer in the 5A classification.

There is one last statistic we would like to accentuate. It is the most important of all in getting him to the next level athletically and in life.

Curry carries a 3.83-GPA. Schools circling him and looking at his matriculation through its program will be happy to know Curry’s being cleared by the NCAA for play is a certainty and not something on which an institution will be gambling.

Curry is gearing up to come back in ’24 and show the world that the ’23 work slate was not a fluke. Atherton has it rolling right now and figures to be in the 5A title hunt.

With a RB the likes of Curry, and hoping his ’24 is injury free, Ravens fans can count on some exciting Friday Nights from the Big A-Train. You have to know a guy when you are seeing one, and Curry certainly fits that particular bill.

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 Atherton’s, Michael Curry, Jr.
