@TrellG04 (Montrell Garnett) from @UCBraves is this week’s @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer.’ @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @PrepSpin

It is very hard to gauge accurately the accomplishments of the guys who play along the scrimmage line, on offense or defense. We are committed to the effort because Mingua Beef Jerky and KPGFootball recognize that winning football begins right there, on the scrimmage lines. We want to make sure we are giving those guys their fair due. Mingua Beef Jerky prizes players who work hard to make the team succeed whether the player himself gets appropriately credited or not. Such was the case Thursday night in Union. County’s opening win over Webster County in the first round of the playoffs. Union County’s Montrell Garnett had an extraordinary performance, though in an out of the ordinary sort of way. Nevertheless, we believe you will find his contributions more than deserving. We did. Enjoy the feature and join us again next week as we do all of this again. HB.

@jaggergillis from @BCRebelFootball is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer’ of the week. @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @MaxPreps

Sometimes the winner of this award doesn’t have the “stand alone numbers” one generally sees from his position group. However, Mingua Beef Jerky also prizes players who invent ways to make things happen even when the opposing defense is trying desperately to take away from that player what he generally contributes. Such was the case Friday night in the Mingua Beef Jerky Bowl. Boyle County’s Jagger Gillis had an extraordinary performance, though in an out of the ordinary sort of way. Nevertheless, we believe you will find his contributions more than deserving. We did. Enjoy the feature and join us again next week as we do all of this again. HB.

@Trentoncutwrig2 from @bryanstationfb is this week’s @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer.’ @PrepSpin @1776Bank @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

This week’s award recipient came up big in the biggest game of the year for his team to date. Trenton Cutwright had a great night in Bryan Station’s win in Richmond Friday night against highly regarded Madison Central High School. Matter of fact, the sophomore signal caller is having quite a season. Enjoy this feature. HB.

@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.

@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.
