In a written statement, the student pilot reported the airplane touched down on runway 27 (2,650' x 50') on its main landing gear with normal airspeed. The pilot stated the nose wheel began to shake after it touched down and the brakes were applied. In an effort to relieve pressure off the nose wheel, he pulled back on the yoke. As he pulled back, the airplane veered to the left. The pilot stated he was unable to maintain control of the airplane. The airplane departed the left side of the runway. The nose wheel dug into the soft ground and the airplane came to rest inverted.
