Notable Teams: Ironmen, XSV, Navarone.
Iconic, stoic, and everything that a true paintball ambassador should be, Matty Marshall got his start on the pro fields of Southern California in the late 1990s with historically great teams like Marine Team and Navarone. He then helped win multiple world titles and numerous events with the Ironmen and XSV. From the beginning, Matty had a methodical and measured approach to the game of paintball and was an effective front player who would break open games. He was one of the first players to do paintball-specific drills, and soon after he became one of the most dominant gun-fighters in the pro league. Matty is the game's best ambassador and he was among the first players to travel to Europe to play across the world professionally and promote the game of paintball. His dominance on the field transitioned into a writing and media career that has changed the way the game is portrayed in media, and he was a major part of nearly every piece of media that was critical to the game's expansion such as Push, Sunday Drivers, Heroes for a Day, and every major livestream. He continues to push paintball media to tell great stories and the way he has enriched the game for both players and viewers has been monumental for the sport’s growth in popularity over the last two decades.
