But Otago Boys' High School pupil Declan Su'a is definitely no relation of his famous namesake, Murphy Su'a.
And, unlike the much-maligned former New Zealand left-armer, Declan has attracted attention for positive reasons.
The 14-year-old right-arm seamer took nine wickets for eight runs in an innings during an interschool game against Southland Boys' High School at Bishopscourt on Thursday.
To recap - that's nine wickets, eight runs. Who does that?
Earlier in the game, he swatted 74 runs to help set up his side win by an innings and 133 runs.
He got some of his scalps by coming around the wicket and targeting leg stump.
''I hit leg stump a few times by swinging it in and coming around the wicket and bowling at their feet,'' Declan said.
''There were a lot of high fives.''
Declan is hoping his form continues at the New Zealand Community Trust junior secondary school tournament in Palmerston North next week.
Otago Boys' is the defending champion and hopes to do well.
For the record, Murphy Su'a's test record is much better than you might think. He took 36 wickets in 13 tests, including two five-wicket bags.
