In his senior year, Bobby Daniels helped lead Denfeld's 1948 football team to a state championship as a running back. He also was high point man at the 1949 state track meet, helping lead Denfeld to the Minnesota State High School Track and Field Meet. Daniels won the 100- and 200-yard dash and anchored the half-mile relay team that won the state title and finished the year 18-0. In addition, he won the state’s Golden Gloves boxing title as a sophomore.

The 1949 football team went undefeated and defeated Aberdeen (South Dakota’s state champs), 19-14. Aberdeen beat the state champs of Iowa, North Dakota and Nebraska that season. Also, Denfeld beat the Wisconsin state runner up, Eau Claire, 34-6 before winning the Litkenhaus Ratings Trophy, emblematic of the official Minnesota State Championship with a 25-0 victory over Central.
