@yeascooby (Devon Morris) from @PinevilleFootb1 is the @minguabeefjerky ‘Protein-packed Performer of the Week.’ @1776Bank @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

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, RB/ATH/DB, Devon Morris from Pineville, Kentucky’s Pineville High School, wouldn’t it?    

To say senior Devon Morris had a tremendous senior year would be an understatement. Morris led his classification in yards gained per rushing attempt (12.1) and was among the classification’s leaders in yards gained rushing (1,434-yards in just 10-games). Morris did his damage over a relatively paltry 119-carries, scoring 22-rushing TDs or a TD every 5.4 rushing attempts.

Morris wasn’t a “one trick pony” either. Pineville doesn’t throw it often, but Morris still corralled 11-receptions (good for second on the entire team) for 162-yards and a pair of receiving TDs. He led his team in offensive scoring.

Morris contributed defensively in ’21. Pineville doesn’t record its defensive statistics online. However, we can tell you Morris intercepted a pair of passes, for tops on the team, returning one of the two all the way for a TD among his 67-interception return yards.

Morris is a 5-10, 170-pound athlete gaining next level looks as a RB and even as an ATH. He has been clocked at 4.5-seconds in the 40-yard dash and his highlights leave little reason to question the legitimacy of that number.

Pineville was 8-4 in 2021. As we continue to say goodbye to the class of ’22, Pineville is just the latest example of an in-commonwealth team left with the unenviable task of replacing a player at a key position who was a generational type talent.

We thought it would be appropriate to feature Devon Morris in this article. We also found his efforts deserving of nourishment. 

Mingua Beef Jerky agreed this young man could use a bolt of protein. They 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 Pineville High School’s Devon Morris. 

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