@RedhoundsFB, Brayden Reynolds, is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @PrepSpin

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, and never chopped or formed like other brands, make our products superior and one of a kind. That would make our products similar to this week’s Protein Packed Performer of the Week, Big-time MLB/DT (Class of ’22), Brayden Reynolds from Corbin, Kentucky who attends Corbin High School, wouldn’t it? 

Reynolds is a ‘tweener, and we could see him playing in a lot of different capacities in college. He’s 5-11, 226-pounds presently and could play at MLBer where Corbin sometimes deploys him. He could bulk up some, to let’s say 265 or so and be the quick-twitch, interior defensive lineman many teams are busy searching to find.

We could see him playing fullback for schools running from offensive formations leaning heavily on ground attack. We could even see him playing in the spread as the lead-blocking H-back in its power offensive sets.

We aren’t trying to limit what he can do. He is obviously a very talented athlete. We talk with a lot of college scouts about a lot of players and that is what we hear many of them say about athletes possessing the stature and skill-sets of a Brayden Reynolds.

Corbin played Reynolds across its front both defensively and extensively in its 10-games in 2020. He responded well, finishing 3rd on the team with tackles (66), leading the team in TFLs (6), and tying for second in QB-sacks (3). Ask anyone you wish, production like this out of a guy who’s going to be doubled upfront and probably assigned a back is quite a lot of production.

Corbin played very well this past season, finishing 8-2 coming off a down year in 2019. Corbin’s two losses were by six to Beechwood, Class 2A State Champion in 2020, and by 14 to Johnson Central, which had won the crown in 4A in 2019 with many players returning.

Along the way the Redhounds smacked Somerset (2019, Class 2A Champion) by 27 and Lincoln County by 24. Football’s a game of inches. Corbin was “right there” in 2020.

Reynolds is “super-strong.” In fact his raw power is down-right off the charts. He has just broken the Corbin High School record for bench press with this incredible press of 420-pounds!

We had trouble believing it too. We have linked it for you in this article so there can be no (legitimate) doubt about its occurrence.

When it comes to admiration for what Reynolds brings to the table, we absolutely love both him and players like him. He’s got a low center of gravity, making him hard to dig out of holes. He is super powerful. He is super explosive. He is super capable of using his strength to split doubles or even shed would be blockers to get to plays and he’s impossible to get away from when he gets his hands on your ball-carrier.

We thought a guy like this could use a bolt of protein. Mingua Beef Jerky has elected to send him some via the prize package of product which comes with this award.

Congratulations to Brayden Reynolds, Class of ’22, from Corbin High School on his selection. 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 Corbin’s Brayden Reynolds.

This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
