About the Inductee

Framingham South Basketball Coach

Phil Moresi

Moresi has been a ‘hoopster’ since he first started basketball at just 8 years old.

Growing up in the Southside of town, Moresi lived “within a stone’s throw” of every captain of every sport in the high school at the time.Naturally he wanted to become a professional athlete when he grew up. Fortunately for him, he excelled in basketball.

Not only was he an excellent player, his coaching skills proved to be more than proficient. Moresi coached the Framingham South High School for 12 years, in that time his teams won 7 Bay State League Championships and competed in 8 state tournaments.

Moresi said one of the most surreal moments of his career was when his team competed in the then “tech tournament,” now known as the State Tournament in the Boston Garden before a full house.

Friday night was more than special for Moresi as one of his former All-American players, David Blatt, introduced him at the induction.

Moresi said he felt incredibly honored to be part of such an event for the city Framingham.

He said, “I took over a program that has been successful, and I wanted to take it to another level.”
