Denfeld's football team had a losing record in 1937, going 2-5-2, but the future was bright for star players Bill Baumgartner and Bob Lund. Baumgartner would lead the Hunters to a 7-0-1 record in 1938 and go on to play collegiate ball for the Minnesota Gophers and professionally for the Baltimore Colts. Lund went on to become vice president of General Motors Corp.
