Where did Atlanta Falcons' quarterback Matt Ryan get his nickname?
Matt Ryan's nickname "Matty Ice" not from clutch play but affinity for Natural Ice in high school.
Basically, he is named after a beer.
According to his high school (William Penn Charter) baseball coach, Richard Mellor:
"Matt started his first varsity baseball game as a freshman, at third base against Malvern Prep. We were playing against his older brother, Motts. Matt had two hits, no errors, and we won. That's how he got the nickname Matty Ice."
