Like father, like son
"Matt Centrowitz was born in New York, New York, and attended Power Memorial Academy, where he became the first New Yorker to break nine minutes in the two mile run (8:56.00), and retains one of the top ten all time high school 1500 meter times (3:43.4). He attended Manhattan College, then transferred to the University of Oregon. In 1976, he broke Steve Prefontaine's 1500 meter school record, running 3:36.7. He was on the 1976 US Olympic team (1500 meters) and the Duck's 1977 NCAA Cross Country Championship team. He won four US National Championships in the 5000 meters and set an American record in the 5000 meters in 13:12.91. Matt now coaches at American University and has coached over 20 All-American runners. He is the proud father of Lauren, Mathew and Marisa Centrowitz and was fortunate enough to watch Mathew win the gold medal in the 1500 meters at the 2016 Rio Olympics"--Back cover.
