Amajoyi was a first-team all-league and first-team all-CIF selection after rushing for 1,592 yards and scored 25 touchdowns.
What makes Amajoyi's stats even more impressive is the fact he had to share the rock with his older brother UC-Davis bound Dozie Amajoyi. Dozie was the team's leading rusher with 3,006 yards and 30 touchdowns.
The younger Amajoyi also stood out as a outside linebacker racking up 85 tackles, three interceptions and 2.5 sacks.
Amajoyi is hard worker on and off the field. In the weight room, Amajoyi benches 315, squats 485, power cleans 305 and has recorded an explosive 38-inch vertical.
In the classroom, Amajoyi has a perfect 4.0 GPA and scored a 1870 SAT.
Continuing with Amajoyi's work ethic, he worked on his football skills at the NIKE held in Palo Alto, the Valley College Combine and the USC Skills Camp.
Though it is early, Amajoyi has two early favorites.
"I would probably say Stanford and Washington are my two leaders," Amajoyi said. "I like Coach Tyrone Willingham and think he's a great coach.
"I think I would like to play for Coach Willingham and believe the program is going in the right direction."
"I like Stanford's balance of academics and athletics," Amajoyi said. "In my family academics come before athletics.
"I also like the Bay Area. One of my brothers will be at UC-Davis and my oldest brother just graduated from Cal and will now be attending medical school there."
"I don't see myself making an early decision," Amajoyi said. "I want to take my time and take my official visits.
"I want to make sure of the school and the area is right for me. After all, I will be spending the next four or five year there."
