Ryan Matyas participated in triathlons while only in middle school but above all he preferred playing rugby. In High School, Matyas was a standout rugby player and continued playing in college for the University of Arizona.

Matyas was quick to showcase his rugby skillset, becoming a Men’s Collegiate All-American and end even helping the Men's Junior All-Americans win the Serevi Rugby Town Sevens championship agains senior level teams. He went on to make his Sevens debut at Gold Coast 7s in 2013 and followed it up with a cap in XVs three years later against Chile at the 2016 Americas Rugby Championship (ARC).

Professionally, Matyas has spent time in New Zealand playing for the North Harbour Sevens team, as well as with a multitude of other senior clubs which have helped him stand out as an athlete. He spent time as a Strength & Conditioning coach for the University of Arizona's rugby program, continuing to suit up for the Eagles where he helped the squad win two back-to-back ARC title victories (2017 & 2018).
