Tre Jackson from Mayfield is our @minguabeefjerky Protein-packed Performer of the Week @jujustarks24 @mhscoachjoe @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @840WHAS @KyHighFootball

Makers of the world's finest all-beef jerky products. #Savortheflavor

’25 OL/DL may have been our biggest All-State miss…

Tre Jackson really looks the part. He is 6’2,” 250-pounds and the focus of every scouting report along the defensive front for any team playing Mayfield. He is getting a lot of ‘next level’ attention too. Jackson is a guy we may have missed on our All-State Football team this year but it was an incredible year for players in the Small School (1A, 2A, & 3A) classifications so there were going to be some misses. We hope some recognition here, and some world renown all-beef jerky together with a sweet T-shirt will help soften the blow and act as our apology. We have our eyes on the young man for next year, you can bet on that!

All-State Football Team Reveal Show

Mayfield, KY: 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 PerformerTre Jackson, ’25 OL/DL from Mayfield High School in Mayfield, Kentucky. 

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

KPGFootball on the quality of Mingua’s product

We have been in the All-State Football business for many years. We, at KPGFootball, published the first and only MS All-State football teams in KY history; the first and only underclassmen (Frosh and Sophomores) All-State football teams in KY history; were Associated Press voters for several years (the only digital magazine in the AP’s history vested with an All-State, Mr. Football, and weekly top-ten vote), and have (now) collaborated with News Radio 840 WHAS to publish the first and only Small (1A, 2A, 3A) and Large (4A, 5A, 6A) school All-State Football teams in KY history.

We’ve been around the block to say the least. We had to tell you that to tell you the following with some established credibility. We have never participated in or even reviewed any all-anything team which got all the deserving players.

All teams have misses. We had some misses this year.

Tre Jackson could have made our All-State, Small School Division team very easily. He has the frame (6’2,” 250-pounds). He has the production (66-tackles, half a sack, 2-FRs; played along an offensive front which paved the way for 697-points, 2,768-yards rushing, and 2,715-yards passing with 35-TD passes and 49-rushing scores).

Jackson has the playing credentials. Jackson was selected, by the area coaches, first team, All-WKC (Western Kentucky Conference).

Jackson was double-teamed all year. Jackson was avoided (at all costs) by offensive play callers all year.

Jackson was like a fog; in fact, we call him The Crimson Fog around our offices. Why? Well, like a fog he just kind of envelops the action, impacting events and swallowing whole anything run his way.

 We call Tre Jackson “The Crimson Fog,” he just envelops the action, swallowing whole any thing run his way…

Friday Night Fletch

Now Jackson has plenty of suitors interested in his “next level” potential. He has plenty of next level potential, and growth potential.

Tre has plenty of length and the frame to hold another 20-or so pounds. We like his bend and athleticism and feel him likely to play along the defensive front on the Saturday circuit.

Till then he will keep anchoring both lines of scrimmage for 2A’s most prestigious programs. You might look for him on next year’s Small School All-State team too. Just saying…

Join us next week as we return to honor another weekly prize winner. Until then, pop some Mingua Beef Jerky in your mouth and savor the quality and flavor which sets it apart from the competition. Remember, our product is superior and one of a kind; just like Mayfield’s, Tre Jackson. 

This is Friday Night Fletch reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron and reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE. Don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
