About this product Synopsis Every once in a while something happens in the world of sports that reminds us all why we care about such things. This book is the remarkable, untold story of the greatest team you've never heard of, the wrestling team of Cornell College, a private Methodist liberal arts college with only male students, which won the NCAA wrestling championship in , defeating all the major powers by a substantial margin. This tiny Iowa college thus became 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.
Not only that, but with the help of the town of Mount Vernon, and a fund-raising drive, the champions traveled to San Francisco and won the equally prestigious National AAU championship two weeks later, thus completing the "grand slam" of amateur wrestling. The Dream Team of is a classic David and Goliath story that transcends the sport. This is the remarkable, untold story of the greatest team you've never heard of.

Available mid-November on Amazon. Reviews "This inspirational book is about a small private college in Iowa that, overcoming tremendous odds, succeeded in dismantling the traditional major college wrestling powers in the United States following World War II.
It's a story about a clever coach who utilized his many talents to assemble the studs that could get the job done on the mat and in the classroom. I was further dumbfounded to learn that Cornell shut out Lehigh in a dual meet on its home mat that same year.
