The Dream Team Of 1947 – Book By Arno P. Niemand

The Dream Team of 1947 proves that any team with talent and heart can win

Description: The Dream Team of 1947 is a classic but true David and Goliath story that transcends the sport of wrestling. It’s the remarkable story of the greatest team you have never heard of, the wrestling team of Cornell College, a tiny, private college that won the NCAA wrestling championship in 1947, defeating all the major powers, becoming the first school outside of the state of Oklahoma ever to win the team championship since teams were officially recognized by the NCAA; no other private school before or since has done so. Then the champions traveled to San Francisco and won the equally prestigious National AAU championship, completing the grand slam of amateur wrestling. The story is informed by the Great Depression and World War II, as well as the GI Bill, which leveled the playing field for several years after the war. It involves a coach direct from central casting, a nurturing small college, three freshmen superstars, and five service veterans, all of whom bonded as a team to defeat all comers. Were it not for a serious car crash the following year that injured two of its stars, there is no telling how much more the team might have achieved. $19.95 - available on Amazon and several bookstores
