Nate Solder, an American football player who plays for the New England Patriots, has had a rather interesting career that has attracted a lot of attention.
As a result, much of the man’s life, including his personal life, Super Bowl appearances, and much more, has always aroused great interest among many people. Here you will find everything you need to know about him:
Nate Solder Bio
Nate Solder was born on April 12, 1988, in Denver, Colorado as Nathaniel Perry Solder. The soccer star was raised here.
He grew up in a very happy family that stayed together for many years. He was raised by his parents; Ed Solder who is his father and mother, Peri Solder together with his brother John Solder. His family was very close so that they all went on vacation to South Africa in 2014 together with his wife.
For his education, the man attended Buena Vista High School in his hometown in Buena Vista Colorado. From here he went on to the University of Colorado.
He started as a soccer player since he was young, playing in his high school soccer team. From 2006 to 2010 he played for the Colorado Buffaloes soccer team during his college years. Over the years he kept a place on the starting line and was recognized as an All-American.
Career and NFL
His professional career began in 2011 with the New England Patriots. At the end of the season, he played in the Super Bowl XLVI but lost to the New York Giants. In 2012 he became the team’s first left tackle. His next seasons continued to be very successful as the Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2014, 2016, and 2017 seasons.
Since Nate Solder won 2 of the last 3 Super Bowls, it is not yet known if he will leave or continue after the Super Bowl, as he will become a free player. For someone who has played successfully alongside Tom Brady in recent years and has protected his blindside, it is believed that there would be many teams who would want to sign him if he does not get another contract from the Patriots, even if he is already approaching 30.
Speculation as to whether he will stay in the game or retire from the game after the Super Bowl starts to follow his statement that he needs to reset his priorities after the difficult years that have passed with his son’s health challenges. At the top of his priorities is his family, he said.
Nate Solder Wife, Son, and Family
It was in 2014 when the offensive lineman of the New England Patriots married his girlfriend at the time, Lexi Allen. Although there is little information about the marriage, the two have been very close ever since.
Lexi Allen works with the YMCA as Teens & Camp director. Due to her work, she is always dealing with children with developmental disabilities. Her husband not only does his thing on the playing field but also helps with charity actions and fundraising for the YMCA.
Her marriage is blessed with a son, Hudson. Hudson was born in July 2015. In the same year, he was discovered with bilateral kidney tumors at the Boston Children’s Medical Center, which broke both his parents’ hearts. He was only three months old when he was discovered with the form of cancer and by the time he was one year old, he had already started chemotherapy. In 2016 the situation improved for Hudson, who was able to stop chemotherapy because the tumors had shrunk. However, they soon began to grow again and chemo began.
It is hoped that just as Nate himself was able to defeat testicular cancer in 2014, his son would also reach the top of the disease. But then, as Nate revealed, there is a lot of uncertainty for the child, which has inspired him greatly. While saying that he does not like to talk publicly about his son’s cancer, the man explained that he and his wife believe that cancer will be a source of strength for others.
Apart from Hudson, Nate and Lexi also have a daughter, Charlie Solder.
