Early yearsEdit

Known for his exceptional speed, Sports Illustrated noted in an April 2017 feature that "...Cioffi and BYU’s Micah Hannemann were the only white corners to start for a BCS school recently. Cioffi had earned his way into that coveted corner spot after a stellar high school career in Springfield, New Jersey and by winning the 2012 state title in the 100 meters with a time of 10.86. Cioffi defeated the favorite in that state title race, Anthony Averett, who is now a cornerback for the Baltimore Ravens."[3]
