@c_pennington10 from @lexsayrefb is this week’s @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @sayreschool

His is one of the most recognized names in Kentucky football. Largely because his dad, Chad Pennington, who is also the head football coach of the Sayre’s program, played 10-years in the NFL, was a Heisman Trophy finalist for Marshall’s Thundering Herd, and was drafted 18th-overall, as the first QB in the 2000 NFL draft. However, his son’s ability to play the same position is drawing quite a few apt comparisons. Enjoy this look at a feature about the son and not the dad and join us again next week as we feature another outstanding candidate. HB.

@Zaynehatfield7 from @BelfryFootball1 is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @CraigYeast @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

We thought we would travel east this week and recognize a guy who is among the very best in the ’22 class playing the defense’s 3rd-level. This guy here already has an offer from Kentucky Wesleyan and he is far from through fielding offers. Enjoy reading about one of the Belfry Pirates favorite residents on Pond Creek. Join us next week when we award some more of Kentucky’s finest beef jerky to another worthy recipient. HB.

@jager_burton committed to @UKFootball and from @FDouglassFB is this week’s @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @coachnatemcpeek

If winning co-Mr. Football from the Associated Press isn’t worth this award and the prizes which come along with it, then what does one possibly have to do? All kidding aside, we have already awarded this distinction to Cameron Hergott so it is only fair Jager should get a T-shirt and some delicious beef jerky too. Enjoy this feature from our friends at the Mingua Beef Jerky Company. HB.

@dbutler105 (Dustin Butler) from Hart County is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer” of the Week. @CurtisB05159591 @1776Bank @HartCountyFball @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

Here’s a guy who is a star in the ’21 class but who is young enough to stay back and reclassify as a ’22 player. There is at least one college football program we have consulted who would like to see him reclassify and would like to take a run at him should he decide to do so. This guy has D-1 skills. He has an ample frame. He has a huge brain. There are lots of possibilities for Butler on the next level. Enjoy this look at this week’s “Protein-packed Performer,” Hart County’s Dustin Butler. HB.

@AndrewH77762733 (Andrew Hardwick) from @BCRebelFootball is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer” of the Week. @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @BoyleRebelsTF

Again with the big guys? What can we say, these big boys are hungry all the time. We promise we will get to some skills as we go along toward the opening of the football season in the Fall of ’21. While recognizing the bigs however, how about this big boy right here? He’s Andrew Hardwick and may be among the best linemen in Kentucky’s class of ’23. Enjoy the feature and join us next week as we award this to another worthy recipient. HB.

@iamxcc34 (Xavier Campbell) from @Battle_tigers is ready to break-out in ’21. @iamxcc2023 @PrepSpin @minguabeefjerky @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

Xavier Campbell is a guy who has played mighty well already. However, we haven’t seen the best from this young Cat by any stretch of the imagination. Guys like him are why Beechwood is always hunting titles, and why they have won so many. Enjoy the feature from our next ‘Break-out’ player for ’21. HB.

@NateCaldwell03 from @KCDFootball1 is the @minguabeefjerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @1776Bank @KCDadmissions @kcdathletics @KCDSchool

We talk a lot about the eye-test. Well, we have heard it before said there are only two types of high school football players; those who play the game and those who just think it is cool to get to wear “football stuff.” This Nate Caldwell is a football player. He’s also our Mingua Beef Jerky Company “Protein-packed Performer of the Week.” Congratulations to Nathan Caldwell and all the folks at KCD and join us next week to coronate another worthy player. HB.

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

We picked this guy in 2019 as a Sophomore All-State defender. He followed up his sophomore season with another solid junior year in spite of playing fewer games because of the pandemic. This is an “out of frame” guy we would take a chance on were we working in the recruiting office at one of Kentucky’s 17-college football programs. This kid can play. Enjoy the feature and congratulations to Sweat on being the Protein-packed Performer of the Week. HB.

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

Mingua Beef Jerky tagged us a video of Brayden Reynolds bench pressing 420-pounds. Man, is that powerful for a kid who weighs 226, or for any kid. We were so impressed we decided to “research” him and discover what kind of football player he is. We learned he is really something. Enjoy this look at this week’s “Protein-packed Performer” and enjoy the highlights and the video of his incredible bench and see why he was a No-doubter for this award. Join us next week as we award this to another outstanding recipient. HB.
