If you were watching the St. Joe's-Virginia Commonwealth game this afternoon, you may have noticed a young Hawks fan standing with his arms crossed behind the Hawks' bench wearing a suit jacket and extra long tie.

To say he was dead-on in mimicking the St. Joe's head coach Phil Martelli is an understatement. It helps that he is Martelli's grandson, Philip Stephen Martelli. He has it in his genes.

Every so often, little Phil would glance over at his grandfather and mimic his gestures at that moment. From the arms crossed, hands on his face and drawing in red marker on his clip board, he stole the show.
