Mr. Niemand's book, 'The Dream Team of 1947' chronicles the extraordinary story of the 1947 wrestling team of Cornell College. It is the true story of a dedicated and talented coach named Paul Scott, a nurturing small college and town, three young superstars fresh out of high school, and five service veterans who all bonded as a team to defeat all comers.  The team was the first school outside the state of Oklahoma to win the NCAA team championship, and two weeks later went on to win the equally prestigious National AAU championship, winning the 'grand slam' of amateur wrestling, something no other private school before or since has accomplished, The Great Depression, World War II, the GI Bill, struggles with scholastic achievement and a serious car crash all affect the team's future in this real-life drama.  More details can be found at (http://dreamteam47.com). The book is available at (www.Amazon.com) and select book stores.
