Travis Eagan, ’23 QB, is the ’22, 6A, Coaches Association, ‘Player of the Year’

We have talked plenty about guys who are just tremendous football players. Well, Travis Eagan, for our money, is the best dual-threat QB we saw grace a high school field all season. No wonder the Coaches’ Association voted him the 6A Player of the Year. Enjoy this look at a QB who has to be in serious contention for ‘Mr. Football.’

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.            

…[S]omething different and superior to all other beef jerkies…

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

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, QB, Travis Egan, from Mt. Washington, Kentucky’s Bullitt East High, wouldn’t it? 

We thought going into the Championship weekend, Bullitt East would have to get a spectacular performance from its senior field general to come out on top. The Chargers had beaten the Bulldogs in the regular season and it is extremely difficult to beat a program like Male twice in the same season.

Mr. Eagan must have been listening to us. A spectacular performance is exactly what he produced.

Eagan threw for 4-TD’s and 286-yards

Eagan threw for 4-TD’s and 286-yards but his best play didn’t come in the passing game. Trailing by a point, Bullitt East elected to go for two. The Chargers ran a double-reverse pass back to Egan where he caught the ball and raced into the end zone for the final margin of 28-27.

Now Travis Egan is a third generation “Egan” to lead the Charger attack in some form or capacity. Brandon, who coached Travis through grade school, wore the same jersey number (10) and played QB just like his son. Travis has just recently passed Brandon as the school’s all-time leader in passing yards.

Travis grandfather, Mike Egan, coached Bullitt East from 1985-2001, including the state runners-up finish in 1994, Brandon’s senior year. As to which “Egan” is the superior QB, Brandon or Travis, Travis told a local newspaper, “We ran completely different offenses…but I like to tell him I’m better.”

Brandon also has an opinion on this argument. “[H]e’s (Travis) taller that I was. He’s stronger than I was. He’s faster than I was. He throws the ball further and more accurately than I ever could.”

He’s stronger than I was. He’s faster than I was. He throws the ball further and more accurately than I ever could.

Brandon Egan on whom was the better QB…Travis or him

Perhaps Egan winning both this award today, and being named the Coaches’ Association, Class 6A, Kentucky Player of the Year yesterday, should be the final measuring stick! We’re fine with that; so are Mike, Brandon, and Travis.

Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and accomplished ’23 QB 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 Bullitt East High’s Travis Egan.

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 #SavorTheFlavor!
