April 30 (UPI) -- The Indianapolis Colts might want to get some scouts out to watch T.Y. Hilton's 4-year-old son.

Eugene "Little Ghost" Hilton Jr. showed that he has some football genes Saturday during a flag football game. Hilton posted a video of his lightning-quick son on Twitter.

"Little Ghost" took a handoff near his own end zone, before juking the entire defense to the right side. He then outran a series of would-be-tacklers and raced toward the opposing end zone. But some defenders caught up to him. He treated them to a face full of turf after unleashing more ridiculous juke moves.

T.Y.'s full name is Eugene Marquis Hilton. The three-time Pro Bowl selection led the NFL last season with a career-high 1,448 receiving yards on 91 receptions.

The speedy wide receiver also posted several videos of his talented youngster last year on social media.

The Colts got in on the fun Saturday when it tweeted: "In non-draft news...Meet @tyhilton13's 4-year old son. #LittleGhost."

This weekend, the Colts drafted Ohio State safety Malik Hooker, Florida cornerback Quincy Wilson, Ohio defensive end Tarell Basham, USC tackle Zach Banner, USF running back Zach Banner, USF running back Marlon Mack, Albany State defensive tackle Grover Stewart, Temple cornerback Nate Hairston, and Northwestern linebacker Anthony Walker.

It looks like "Little Ghost" will have to wait until next year to hear his name called by Roger Goodell.
