Star RB, #JoeyBond from @bryanstationfb is the @Minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @UofLFootball @coachhawkins1

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 WeekJoseph Bond, from Lexington’s Bryan Station High School, wouldn’t it?

Joseph “Joey” Bond (2022) carried it 15-times for 206-yards from scrimmage and 4-rushing TDs. Bond, over the course of the year, has averaged 122-rushing yards per contest playing a tough 6A schedule and has 1,098-yards gained from scrimmage on 131-carries with 11-rushing TDs over his 9-games played.

On Bond’s watch, Bryan Station is 8-1 with wins over Tates Creek, Henry Clay, George Rogers Clark, and Simon Kenton, all traditional 6A powers. The 7-6 narrow loss to Scott County, to open action on September 11, would prove to be its lone blemish on a very impressive 8-1 regular season campaign.

That is quite the turn-around for a program which was an uninspired 3-8 in 2019. What a tremendous job turned in this year by first-year, head man, Phil Hawkins who came over this past summer from a previous stint as head football coach at Owensboro Apollo.

Of course, Bond certainly wasn’t alone in turning in a noteworthy performance this past Friday night. Teammates, Mikaleb Coffey (QB/Ath 2021) and Giovanni Watson G/DT (2021, pictured to the right) pitched in mightily for the win.

Coffey was 16 of 20 for 192-yards, 3-TDs with a pick while rushing it 3-times for 31 yards in Bryan Station’s big win over Simon Kenton. Watson was defensively lethal with his 10-tackles, contributing 2-TFLs just for good measure.

Congratulations to Joey Bond, Class of 2022, from Bryan Stations High School in Lexington, Kentucky for being selected the Mingua Beef Jerky Company’Protein-packed Performer of the Week. Join us next week as the Mingua Beef Jerky Company recognizes another one of a kind performer and performance similar in grandeur to the one we recognized today.

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 Joey Bond.

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