Heck broke the Florida State High School record in the 100 breaststroke last season in sophomore, swimming a 53.73 in preliminaries at the 2020 FHSAA Class 1A State Swimming and Diving Championships. in the final, he scored 54.20 but still gained body length. He also contributed to two winning stints (24.25 split breaststroke in the 4 × 50 medley and 20.31 freestyle in the 4 × 50 freestyle) and placed fifth in the 50 freestyle final. In March, he added PBs in the 100 freestyle, 200 breaststroke and 200 IM at the senior short course swimming championships in North Florida. There he won the 100 backstroke, 100/200 breaststroke and 200 IM and finished third in the 100 freestyle and 100 butterfly.

Heck finished the long haul season with a strong performance at Huntsville Futures. He won the 200 breaststroke and was second in the 100 breaststroke and won the Wave I Trials Cups (1: 02.69 / 2: 16.46) in both. He also achieved PBs in the 100 free (53.53), 100 backstroke (1: 01.06) and 200 IM (2: 09.16).
