2019 Colony Titan Offensive Guard Nicholas Peck is looking to garner more attention in his recruitment while anchoring the Titans offensive line this season.
Th six-foot-three, 295-pound guard from Eastvale, California said that he didn’t have much of an offseason because he jumped from playing with the Colony Titan basketball team to spring workouts for the football team.
On the field and in the classroom Nicholas Peck has seen success. He is a 247Sports three-star recruit, he earned All-American Camp and All-American Bowl Combine invites and was named a player to watch in Colony’s football league Palamores.
He made Principal Honor Roll with a 4.0 GPA and passed his AP Language Arts Exam (4/5).
He transferred from Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Eastvale to Colony High School in Ontario for a fresh start. He spoke highly of Colony’s weight program saying that it makes players both strong and athletic.
“The transition has helped my game in a plethora of areas. It has taught me how to play all five positions on the offensive line,” he said. “While it has also taught me how to play some defensive line as well. The coaching staff at Colony has boosted my game up a lot.”
Nicholas Peck and the Colony Titans (1-0) go on the road to play the Carter Lions (0-1) of Rialto, CA, Friday, Aug. 24 at 7 pm PST/4 pm EST.

These guys on my team are my brothers for life.”
