The following year, he was offered a scholarship at Kansas State University, which is in one of the most elite track and field conferences in the country. At this Big 12 school, he achieved All-American Honors and competed against what are now Olympic-caliber athletes and trained by coaches who were on the Olympic coaching staff. He was honored to have been a part of such a successful program.

After graduating from college in 2011, Coach Coniglio began his Top Performers career, where he has trained hundreds of athletes, helping them obtain great results. “Strength and speed training has been the foundation for my success and the success of the athletes I have developed.” Coach Coniglio has a four-year-old daughter, Giuliana Coniglio, who is a future athlete.
