While at FAMU High, Peck was named team captain and was one of the area's best hitters, batting over .500 in his senior season. He was also voted the team's MVP by his teammates.
After high school, Peck played baseball with Prince George's Community College (PGCC) in Largo, Maryland. He was named a team captain for the PGCC Owls and helped to lead them to their first district tournament in a number of years.
