Amies, a left-footed kicker, made 73.3% of his field-goal attempts, including nine from at least 40 yards out. His longest successful field goal was a 52-yarder. He recorded 45 extra-point kicks and 26 touchbacks.

Amies received Daily Pilot Newport-Mesa Dream Team and first-team All-Orange County honors by the Orange County Register, as well as the All-Pacific Coast League Kicker of the Year award.
