Lewis Hawke, 18, recently joined the Ton youth set-up from Linwood Rangers Boys' Club and has already begun emulating his father by scoring four goals in his first four games.
The Kirkcaldy-born teenager, who is also a striker, bagged a braced in the under-19 side's 5-1 Scottish Cup win over Clyde at Cappielow last week.
And Hawke senior has also revealed he is very impressed with the club's revamped youth system.
He told the Tele: "It's great to see Lewis follow in my footsteps by pulling on a Morton shirt. I was at the game where he scored two, so I was really proud.
"He's now scored four goals in his first four games - but it's early days and he has a long way to go yet.
"But I think he's in great hands. I've been impressed with the quality of the youth set-up, both in terms of the coaching and the players.
"Mick Rankin and the coaches Scott McKellar and David McLeod do a great job with the under-19s, and the youth system is going from strength to strength."
