Makers of the World's finest beef jerky products

’23 athlete finds himself on various D-1 recruiting boards at season’s midway point

Kris Hughes is among the very best athletes playing the high school game across the western end of Kentucky. Last Friday night, against Webster County, the star of the Union County Braves (7-0) put his full quiver of talents on display for all to see. The sledding gets tougher next game out as Union County prepares to play Paducah Tilghman with the one-seed in district likely going to the winner.

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.    

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.    

Our recipes and our quality ingredients, hand-cut from solid pieces of beef, are never chopped or formed like other brands, making our products superior and one of a kind. That would make our products similar to this week’s Protein Packed Performer, Class of ’23, RB/DB, Kristopher Hughes from Morganfield, Kentucky’s Union County High, wouldn’t it?

Union County is having quite the season. Of course, of late, the Braves from Morganfield, Kentucky have gotten pretty accustomed to winning and factoring in the 3A title hunt across Kentucky. Union, with Paducah Tilghman and Trigg County, also plays in one of 3A’s toughest districts.

Friday night, the ’23 RB/DB just went off against Webster County in what ended a 48-18 rout at Webster. Hughes had 380-all purpose yards on only 13-touches.

Hughes scored a TD rushing, receiving, housed a 2-pt. conversion, and carried a 91-yard kick return to pay dirt. Now that is called three-phase dominance and it a rare site, in deed, on any high school football field.

Hughes rushed for 215-yards and was the team’s leading rusher. Hughes caught 74-yards receiving and led the team in that statistical category as well. Heck, the combo RB/DB registered 5-tackles to make more than token contribution to the defensive side of the football.

Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and accomplished ’23 RB/DB could use a bolt of protein. The company volunteered to send him some straight away. 

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 Union County High’s Kris Hughes.

This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT and don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
