Plys, who started to curl in 1998, used to curl with Aanders Brorson, Matt Perushek, and Matt Hamilton. He has been in six State Curling Championships, taking first in the years 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009. Doing this allowed Plys to advance to the national level championships, the title in which he has won for four straight years (2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009) (usacurl.org). He has made his way up the platform at the Junior Men’s World Curling Championships. In 2006, Plys took 9th place in Jeonju, South Korea. The next year, in 2007, he took 5th place in Eveleth, Minnesota. And finally in 2008, Plys won the gold medal in Ostersund, Sweden (usacurl.org). Plys has also competed at the World University Games in 2007, in Pinerolo, Italy. He played second on the John Shuster team, and they won the gold. Plys currently holds the record for the most United States Junior National Championships by a skip (usacurl.org).

Plys was chosen to be the alternate on the 2010 US Olympic team and represented the United States at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, B.C. He was called in to skip the team during Draw 6 while the US team was still recovering from four losses in a row, and led the team to a 4-3 victory over France after a 10th end steal. Following the Olympics, Plys was drafted onto the Tyler George rink, where he throws third rocks.
