Prior to last week’s game Morgan County and Jefferson had not met on the gridiron in an official game since 1969. Between 1948 and 1969 they met seventeen times and MCHS leads the series 11-4-2. Of course Jefferson has been on a roll for the last several years. From 2008 -2013 the Dragons are an impressive 60-13-0 and won the 2012 title by defeating Calhoun 31-14 in the Georgia Dome.

Two weeks ago we made a list of Morgan County’s All State players list going back to 1993. Here’s some more of that list dating back to 1963. Remember this is from the Atlanta Journal / Constitution (AJC), Associated Press (AP), and the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association (GACA) publications only. We will take a look at All-State selections prior to 1963 in future articles.
