The big senior’s efforts deemed ‘Jerky-worthy’
Peyton Ledford may be the most explosive and twitchy player in all of Kentucky High School football. The Military Academy at West Point seems to agree with us as the FBS, D-1, prestigious service academy has been among the first of the big-timers to pull the trigger. There will be many, many others before this train pulls back into the station.Fletcher Long, KPGFootball’s Senior Scout and Editorial Board Member
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, Class of ’23, ILB,DE,TE,FB, Peyton Ledford from Frankfort, Kentucky’s Franklin County High School, wouldn’t it?
Ledford is quite a load. He is 6’3″ tall and weighs 250-pounds. Ledford’s being a load isn’t just confined to his height and weight. Ledford is quite a load on the playing field under the Friday Night Lights.
Ledford really shone out on defense in ’21. He registered 101-tackles, 17-TFLs, and 2.5 QB-sacks playing up in the “run box.” That isn’t all he did. Ledford picked off two passes, both of which he returned for “pick-sixes,” and forced a pair of fumbles to boot.
Leford was exactly half of the defense’s pick-sixes in ’21. The other two were turned in by Gavin Hurst (’24).
Ledford caught 8-passes at TE for 213 receiving yards and a TD. He also gained 65-yards from scrimmage in eight (8)-carries. That seems to be quite a bit of contribution from only one player especially a player toiling away on one of Kentucky 4A’s finest rosters of talent.
Ledford has been ranked by 247Sports.com as the commonwealth’s 17th-most highly sought after and regarded prospect in Kentucky’s ’23 class. The Army “Black Knights” (US Military Academy at West Point) have already offered the primetime player with teams like EKU, Marshall, and many others circling.
Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and exceptionally versatile ’23 football player, and rising Senior, could use a bolt of protein. The company 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 Franklin County’s Peyton Ledford.
This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT and don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
