The St. Joseph’s Hawks clinched an appearance in the NCAA tournament by winning the A-10 championship, defeating VCU 65-61 on Sunday.

It seemed like they had a little extra help from the coaching staff, as St. Joe’s head coach Phil Martelli made an addition to his staff for the game.

His 4-year-old grandson, Philip Stephen Martelli, paced up and down the bleachers just behind the team’s bench, mimicking his grandfather’s movements throughout the game.

He was dressed up in the same suit jacket/pocket kerchief combination, and even wearing one of his grandpa’s ties. The plays the young prodigy was drawing up on the sideline would have been revelatory, but unfortunately he wiped it off before reporters got a chance to take a peek.

I think we can all agree that it’s best for young Martelli to return to the sideline during the St. Joseph’s/UConn matchup later this week.
