San Bernardino (Calif.) Aquinas is home to one of the state's best two way players. Chike Amajoyi, 6-0, 215 pounds is an intriguing player who could play on either side of the ball in college.
As a junior, Amajoyi rushed for 1,600 yards and 23 touchdowns at running back to go with 80 tackles, three picks and two sacks from his safety position as the Falcons rolled to a 13-1 season and won the Div XII CIF championship. The Falcons dropped their first two games this year but have looked very good the past two weeks outscoring their opponents by a combined score of 72-13.
"We're starting to come together," Amajoyi said. "We're getting better each week and even though I know we still have a lot of work to do, I definitely think we're on the right track."

Amajoyi is currently getting recruited on both sides of the ball and could project as a primary running back, fullback or linebacker in college. In terms of his size and versatility, Amajoyi reminds us a little of current Stanford linebacker Michael Okwo, who starred on both sides of the ball a few years back.
"Recruiting is going good right now," Amajoyi said. "I have the same offers that I've had for awhile now, Arizona State, Utah Stanford, Washington and UTEP. Right now, I really like all those schools a lot but I'm keeping the door open to anyone else who wants to come in and recruit me.
"Stanford is a school I've liked for awhile and I just recently finished up my application. I was there for the NIKE camp and it's a really beautiful campus and the academics are incredible. My parents like Stanford a lot and that's probably where they would like to see me.
"I also like Washington a lot and they're playing really well right now. ASU is up there as well, those two plus Stanford are schools I'm definitely going to visit and I'll probably just keep those last two open right now."
