Thanks so much for the info.
When I get a chance, I am going to see if I can find anything else out in the Rome News-Tribune as well as the Chattanooga Times Free Press regarding the game with Hartwell and why it was played.
If I am able to find out anymore info, I will report them here as well.

The SGFA champion of 1942 was Albany, who played and lost to Griffin in the Class B title game.
Albany plays a straight SGFA schedule. Though there were some changes in name and a few adjustments in membership, the core teams stayed the same through the years and it's a very established conference.
Griffin's scores appear to be a mishmash. There was some overlap between the NGIC and NGFA and it's been long enough that I can't remember exactly how much of it there was. Either way, they were a very good team and it doesn't look like they played any kind of conference championship game, though there are some gaps in what I have. Perhaps one wasn't needed. Their only loss was to Decatur.
As for the other half of the puzzle, my notes have Trion and Hartwell meeting for the NGFA title. That doesn't sound right. Trion wouldn't have been a member of the NGFA. Hartwell was.
They did, however, have a game with Hartwell two years previous, played at nearly the same time and it definitely wasn't for an NGFA title. I'm beginning to believe that the 1942 game was nothing more than an extension of that, perhaps even set up between the coaches as end-of-the-season challenge-type thing. How the NGFA was tossed in, I don't know. I'm not even sure how much it existed as this point with the war. Elberton claimed a 10th district title in 1942 as a result of their victory over Hartwell, so that's something else, too.
Perhaps Trion attempted to take things further and attempted to get a championship game with Albany, who declined because Griffin had been determined to be the appropriate opponent for a state title game.
No other conferences existed in south Georgia outside of a few based on congressional districts and they weren't the type to attempt something that big.

One more thing, there are several former RJB players that should be in the record books. I know for a fact, one former QB threw 9 TD passes in one game. Also, Ken Ellis should be listed as a RJB player who played in the NFL.

If you have a program w/ names, we'd love to add them.
As for all-state, typically there is a first team w/ honorable mentions. If he's not listed as first team, he probably didn't make it. For some seasons (not sure if '66 is one), we don't include honorable mentions. Probably because we don't have a copy of them. During some years in the '60s, they had so many HM that we might've gotten lazy and not taken the time to type them in. We're happy to include HM, but would need to get a list of everybody and then find a way to get them typed in.
