Nate Brakeley was a standout high school rugby player for St. John's Prep in Massachusetts and was a Men's Collegiate All-American (MCAA) while at Dartmouth University. While playing for Dartmouth, Brakeley lead his squad two Collegiate Rugby Championship (CRC) titles.

After graduation, the athlete went on to study at Cambridge University where he also played rugby. He returned to the United States in 2014 and began playing for New York Athletic (NYAC). There, Brakeley was asked to join Cambridge's touring side for a match against the MCAAs, where the American age-grade side took the victory.

In 2015, Brakeley won a USA Rugby Senior Club DI National title and was asked to tour with the Men's Eagles a mere months after for the 2016 Americas Rugby Championship (ARC) at the senior level. In the United States' match against Canada, Brakeley earned his first cap moving on to the 2017 ARC where he faced Canada again, scoring his first international try and helping the Eagles earn their first ever title victory in the tournament.
