Saint Joseph's coach Phil Martelli's grandson is quickly becoming a star

Thursday March 20th, 2014

He's doing the press junket. He's getting prime time interviews. He's (probably) trending on Twitter. It's good to be Phil Martelli's four-year-old grandson. With his spot-on imitations of the Hawk and his grandpa, he's sure to get some looks in a few coaching searches this offseason. Upside. Basketball lineage. Snappy dresser. Sense of humor. Wins the press conference. Hasn't developed bad habits. In a lot of ways, he's the perfect candidate. Go get him, Virginia Tech.
