Grayson Mathers is a football quarterback who plays for the Springfield Atoms.

History[edit]

Young Grayson and his parents.

When Grayson was a baby, he showed talent for football. He was then sent to the Tex-ida Football Academy to learn everything about football. After he graduated, Grayson went to Alabama Tech. Grayson never met with his parents again, but they benefited from his success.

Grayson Mathers transferred to the Springfield Atoms at the start of the football season, which got the town excited. When Mr. Burns saw how excited everyone was for Grayson, Burns chose him to be the spokesperson for his new brandy brand, Do You Chugging Brandy. Grayson and Burns started to get close, with Grayson even hugging Burns. The night before his first game, Grayson went out to multiple clubs and got drunk.

Grayson's first game came around and he turned up hungover from his night of drinking. As a result of this, he played poorly and got benched quickly. The town turned against him and threw merchandise they had bought at the stadium at Grayson and Burns, who had come onto the field to defend Grayson. Grayson became upset as he had never been booed before and thought that the way he acted was the problem. Mr. Burns then decided to take Grayson to the Springfield Elementary School to talk to the children there. Grayson told the children that he hadn't even set foot inside a school and he now owned three identical Ferraris. The bullies then started to insult Grayson for his poor performance during the game, which angered Grayson. He started throwing books at the children, causing them to flee. Grayson then drank from a bottle of Do You Chugging Brandy and collapsed on the floor.

In the school infirmary, Marge told Grayson that she was the only one who felt sorry for him still, and even she had about had it with him. Marge, Grayson and Mr. Burns then had a talk and they decided that Grayson should stay with Marge for a bit to nurture Grayson. At the Simpson house, Grayson had dinner with the family, then stole food from Bart's plate. Bart fought with Grayson to get the food back until Marge stopped them. Marge explained to Grayson that families looked out for each other, rather than having it be everyone for themselves.

Grayson started to learn what it was like to have a family and everyone helped him to become less selfish and help around the house. On Grayson's birthday, the Simpsons threw a party for him, which Burns and Smithers also attended. Mr. Burns was horrified to find that Grayson had become a soft momma's boy and thought that it would have dire consequences. The next day, Grayson pulled off a phenomenal performance in a football game and the Atoms won. During the post-game press conference, the reporters were surprised to see that Grayson's personality had completely changed and that he had become a mama's boy. This upset Mr. Burns, who went to argue with Marge because he thought that Marge had ruined Grayson. Due to the argument, Grayson left the Simpson house and didn't talk to Burns or Marge again for several days.

When the Sportswardsies were happening, Grayson sent an invitation to Marge. Marge thought that this meant that she had won over Mr. Burns and went to the awards. However, Burns was at the awards too, having also been invited. Grayson won the award for Most Inspiring Athlete and gave a speech on stage. He then thanked the person who got him through the rough patch in his life, his fiancée Kaitlyn. This shocks both Marge and Burns, who realized that Grayson had moved on from them and didn't want them in his life any more. Grayson then revealed that Kaitlyn was his new business manager.

Personality[edit]

Originally, Grayson was arrogant and selfish, only doing things for himself. This was likely at least somewhat inspired by his parents and his upbringing. His parents barely even saw him and benefited from their son's success. Grayson also went out partying and drinking a lot, even the nights before he had big sports games. This led to him performing badly in the games. Grayson's first game saw him get benched very quickly due to being hungover and the crowd booing him for his poor performance.

Grayson's alcoholism led to him having problems. When Marge started to help him out, Grayson changed due to having a positive influence in his life. Grayson learned what it was like to be part of a family and to think of people other than himself. However, he also became a very big momma's boy, which ruined his reputation as football's bad boy.

Grayson seems to move quickly in his life. After he fled from Marge and Mr. Burns for arguing, he seemed to quickly forget about them and moved on with a fiancée, Kaitlyn, who he had only known for three days before getting engaged to her and making her his business manager.
