@CamHergott24 from @BHSTigerFBall is this week’s @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer.’ @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps

We aren’t going to lie to you. We prefer not to give this award to QBs all the time and we are really hesitant to award it to “past winners.” We strive to spread it around as there are so many weekly worthy players. However, sometimes a former winner, and even a QB, render a performance impossible to ignore. This week, Cameron Hergott, who has put up ridiculous numbers all season, had another performance we just couldn’t ignore. So, the EKU commit wins it again. At the end of this year the Mr. Football award is very likely to follow our lead. Enjoy the article. HB.

Carter Guillaume from @StXTigersFB is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer’ of the Week. @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps

Two weeks in a row we have awarded this award to an offensive lineman as we award it to Kentucky’s very best offensive center. We won’t apologize. These guys have been doing the dirty work for little to no fanfare for far too long. We believe this guy is Kentucky’s best offensive center in the game today. Enjoy the feature. HB.

Lucas Hughes from @HoptownFootball is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Player of the Week.’ @PrepSpin @1776Bank @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

This week’s Mingua Beef Jerky’s Protein-packed performer is OT Lucas Hughes (’22) from Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Sometimes a company which prides itself on selling only the finest cuts of beef needs to recognize the guys up-front who make a living moving meat around a football field. This offensive lineman’s best football is still ahead of him. Enjoy the feature and join us again a week from today where we will do this for the next worthy recipient. HB.

@KrisHughes04 from @UCBraves is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Player of the Week.’ @PrepSpin @1776Bank @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball @UCHSathletics @UnionCoSchools

Guys who find multiple ways to mightily contribute to the team’s victory in more than one phase of the game always seem to impress our voters. This week we picked a guy who could have won this award based off of what he did offensively, standing alone, or what he did on special teams, standing alone. Taken together, it was just too much not to notice. Union County is absolutely red hot and looking over the remaining schedule it looks difficult to forecast a slip up down the stretch. We could be looking at a 10-0 ball club entering the playoffs. If that occurs, today’s recipient will have played a major part in that happening. HB.

@PolstonDrew from @PulaskiCoSports is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer’ of the Week. @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @JohnHines66

There is a QB in Kentucky who could win this award every week. QB is one which gets tons of attention owing to the nature of the position. We try not to award this to just the glory positions but we spread it around to the less glorious ones also. Every now and then a signal-caller has a night which just can’t be ignored. The night Polston had against the strongest program in the 3A Classification was such a night to us. Congratulations to Drew Polston and join us next week as we tee this up and do it all again. HB.

@PrestonBC00 from Boone County a young ‘up and comer’ with plenty of potential. @BCHS_Rebels1955 @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

Right off the bat you have to love the personality of any lineman who choses to wear “00” as a number. This is a young ’26 prospect who has the type of frame which indicates there is literally no telling how big he gets in the end. He seems to have plenty of length and good feet and athleticism right now, which is something you don’t always find in “bigs” his age. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@ashton_adams14 from @MasonCoFootball is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @PrepSpin @CentreFootball @MaxPreps @1776Bank

Mingua Beef Jerky appears to really appreciate versatility. Maybe that is the reason its superior product comes in a variety of forms and in many different delicious flavors. Ashton Adams reminds us of a guy who won this prestigious award for his play in ’20, Breathitt’s Lane Weddle. Adams adds so much production and value to his roster and lineup. Colleges are taking notice. Enjoy this feature. HB.

@jake_nashty (Jake Nash), c/o ’22, from @LexCathFootball is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @PrepSpin @1776Bank @KyHighFootball

We have made it no secret we enjoy publicizing the players who rarely get any publicity, the offensive linemen across Kentucky. Well, if I were putting together a line of scrimmage from all of the linemen across the commonwealth of Kentucky to play a football game, the Big Nashty would be prominently discussed as a starter on this line. Congratulations to him on winning this week’s award and join us next week as we award this to another outstanding player from across Kentucky. HB.

@BClark_10_2021 from @BardstownFootb1 is the @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week. @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

This is another kid who decided to reclassify under SB-128. Like QB, Cameron Hergott, before him; it appears to us this decision may just pay off big time for the ’22 QB. Brady Clark has all the intangibles and tangibles colleges crave for his position. Now he has him a sweet T-shirt and a box of the best jerky product on the market headed his direction. Join us next week when we award this to another lucky recipient. HB.
