Wyatt Blake, ’22 ATH from @LC_Cougars, is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-Packed Performer’ of the week! @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps

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, 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 ’22, ATH, Wyatt Blake from Russellville, Kentucky’s Logan County High School, wouldn’t it? 

Logan County sits at 9-4 presently and the Cougars will get to host Spencer County in Russellville for the Regional title. Spencer County is 9-3 and coming off a real defensive battle against John Hardin that the Bears were able to win 7-5. Sounds like a baseball score doesn’t it?

Logan was in a real cliff-hanger in the District Championship game too. The Cougars beat the visiting Tigers 39-37 with the Tigers going for two and failing toward the end of the game which would have sent the contest into overtime.

On a game like Logan’s contest with Hopkinsville, every effort mattered. Wyatt Blake’s efforts, which were critical in multiple phases of the game, really shone through this past Friday night under the lights.

Wyatt Blake (’22) completed 1 of the 2 passes he attempted for a gain of 34 yards. Blake carried the football 16-times, gaining 156-yards, and scoring 2-TDs.

Blake caught a pass for 22-yards. Blake scored 14 of the teams 39-points. All of that was what he did on offense.

On defense, Blake led the team in tackles with 10. That is a mouthful and Blake has been doing it all season long.  

On the year Blake is the team’s second leading rusher with 634-yards and 9-rushing TDs on only 81-carries. Blake is the team’s leading receiver with 37-catches for 514-yards and 7-Receiving TDs.

Blake is the team’s leading scorer with 104 of the team’s 375-points on the year. Blake’s forced 3-fumbles, recovering one, and is the team’s second leading tackler with 87-stops together with 3-TFLs. Blake has even picked off a pass and returned it 31-yards.

He’s the picture of versatility

Why not? He’s doing everything else!

It is hard to imagine where Logan County would be right now without Wyatt Blake. We know where they are with him…knocking on the door of 10-wins and a Regional Title with a berth in the Semi-finals possibly upcoming.

Versatile athletes who contribute to the team’s success a variety of ways need some credit and all-beef protein! For the T-shirt and the bolt of protein, we asked our friends at Mingua Beef Jerky to send Blake some nourishment. Like always, they were thrilled to oblige.

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 Logan County High School’s Wyatt Blake. 

This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
