Nate graduated in May 2015 from Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln with a B.A. in Business Administration and a Coaching minor. Nate was a Running Back at NWU, starting several games over the course of his career. After sustaining three tough injuries in a short period of time, he then decided to turn his focus toward coaching and preventing injuries through training athletes. He began coaching at his alma mater, Yutan High School, where he also ran the strength programs. This is when he got in contact with former teammate Eric Richards for an Internship opportunity at the Xplosive Edge. Nate began as an Intern in November 2016, and received his CSCS in February of 2017. Shortly after, Nate joined the Xplosive Edge staff as a strength and conditioning coach.
