About Nathan Peterman |  Family and Education

Nathan Michael Peterman, better known by his stage name Nathan Peterman, was born in Jacksonville, Florida, on May 4, 1994.

He is Chuck and Dana Peterman’s youngest child. He also has two older brothers in the family in addition to them.

Nathan, also known as Nate to his friends and family, was raised in a devout Jacksonville family.

Just outside of their hometown, Creekside Christian Church was founded by Chuck, his father, who was also a preacher.

He attributes his two brothers for molding him into the person he is now to his happy and carefree childhood.

They shared his upbringing and provided for him in every manner. The three brothers hardly differ in age, so when they were young, they were close buddies.

Ryan, his older sibling, used to assist Nate with his homework and frequently completed it on his own when Nate was unmotivated or ill.

Aaron, his other sibling, gave him the most assistance in developing his athletic side.

Ryan was his playmate as well, but when it came to extracurricular activities, he lagged behind Aaron.

All sports were enjoyable to Nate and Aaron. With the kids in their communities, they primarily played basketball, football, and baseball.

Aaron played as violently and without mercy with Nate as he did with his pals, even though Nate was his younger brother.

Nate thinks that over time, his brother’s attitude during their frequent games toughened him, and he respects Aaron for helping to bring out the best in him.


In terms of his education, Nathan attended Bartram Trail High School in St. Jones, where he received his diploma in 2012.

He chose to continue his education after high school by enrolling at the University of Tennessee.

Although Peterman transferred to the University of Pittsburgh to play college football for the Pittsburgh Panthers in his junior year, he graduated from the University of Tennessee with a communications bachelor’s degree in 2016.

The Katz Graduate School of Business at Pitt University in Pennsylvania is where he later finished his MBA studies.

Professional Life and Career

Nathan was a quarterback for the Bartram Trail Bears while he was a high school student at St. Jones.

From his first season on, he made an impression, and he kept up his form through high school.

Nathan amassed 36 touchdowns as a senior. After his senior season, he consequently earned a four-star recruiting rating.

He received calls from numerous college football programs, but in the end, he decided to enroll at the University of Tennessee in 2012.

In subsequent games, Tennessee coach Butch Jones preferred him over Justin Worley, but due to injury, he was limited to just four games that season.

He transferred to the University of Pittsburgh in 2015 after his second season with the Tennessee Volunteers did not go as planned due to a lack of success.

He had more opportunities when playing with the Pittsburgh Panthers, which led to him regaining his strength.

In his third and final years, he played thirteen games per season with great stats, which later led to him being one of the five Pittsburgh Panthers players selected in the 2017 NFL Draft.

NFL Career

Nathan Peterman was selected by the NFL’s Buffalo Bills as the 171st overall choice in the fifth round of the 2017 draft.

His performance during the 2017 Super Bowl and the previous two college seasons was sufficient to guarantee him a spot in the league.

Peterman, though, didn’t make his season debut against the New Orleans Saints until the tenth week and played only around five minutes of it.

Nate started the following season as a starter, but Jose Allen and Derek Anderson had to fight for it. He played in just four games for the Bills in his second season as a result.

On May 11, 2022, he signed a contract with the Chicago Bears, but on August 30, 2022, he was cut and added to the practice squad.
