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.
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.
Our recipes and our quality ingredients, hand-cut from solid pieces of beef, and never chopped or formed like other brands, make our products superior and one of a kind. That would make our products similar to this week’s Protein Packed Performer of the Week, Wilson Pendleton (2021) from Union, Kentucky’s Ryle High School, wouldn’t it?
Wilson Pendleton, a class of 2021 prospect, is a football player. He plays football for a historically tough, Class 6A football program in the Ryle Raiders. He’s got it all…explosion, length, football IQ, quickness, speed…just the whole package.
Pendleton is 6-3, weighs 230-pounds, and played in high school from DT to DE along the Ryle front. He figures to play end in college, though his beefing up some and sliding inside wouldn’t be out of the question.
With a 3.944 GPA and a 28 on the ACT, he has the grades to get a ton of financial academic aid at any level of football he should choose. The world (of college football) is literally his oyster.
In 2020 for the Raiders, Pendleton had 69-tackles, 12-TFLs, 8-QB sacks, and forced a pair of fumbles. The 20 defensive plays in the offensive backfield tells me he is aggressive and certainly not getting driven back into the defense’s second level. His forcing fumbles tells me when he arrives at the ball-carrier, he’s in a foul mood.
The Raiders, like so many high-school teams in Kentucky, had an interesting COVID-plagued year. The perennial 6A football power came out the gate 1-3. Then the Raiders won five straight to garner a 1-seed in the district round, gaining a bye and getting to host Dixie Heights for the district crown.
Dixie Heights upset Ryle in the second-round, so things didn’t go as planned. Upsets this past postseason were something we saw more of this year than any previous one, probably in large part because of the global health crises.
Overall, Ryle polished off a tough slate of games with a respectable 6-4. This is true even where Dixie Heights turned around a regular season 44-14 pasting on October 16, 2020 with a 41-36 win on November 27, 2020.
In any event, this particular long, tall, lengthy, and athletic DE will be hard to replace in the Raider lineup in 2021. In 2021, this is a guy who will be suiting up on Satudays.
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 Ryle High’s Wilson Pendleton.
This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
