The name says it all – Joseph.

They are the first-family of Houston high school football coaching.

Eddie Joseph built his legacy at Wharton High School before son Gary Joseph took over at Katy in 2004 and the rest is history.

Scott Joseph will be back running his own program starting today at Aldine Davis High School. He replaces James Showers, who opened the school seven years ago.

"A mutual friend reached out to me and told me I should look at the opportunity," he said. "I've known Dre' Thompson (athletic director) a long time and had the opportunity to meet superintendent Dr. LaTonya Goffney. We talked for two-and-a-half hours. No one does that. She's very impressive and has a tremendous vision for the district. I also met with Anthony Watkins, the principal. He has been a head coach before and understands the demands. I was sold."

Most recently, Joseph was the defensive coordinator for Morton Ranch and has had stops at other high schools and the junior college ranks during his career.

"I've recruited athletes out of Aldine Davis for several years," said Joseph, who was the defensive coordinator at Navarro Junior College a few years back. "There is some real talent there."

His first head coaching job was at Westbury High School in 2004.

AUSTIN – Dalton Holland didn't know if he'd be able to get back to state in 2019.

At the beginning of the season, the Barbers Hill senior sprained his ankle badly, which forced him to be in a boot for two to three weeks and miss the first half of the track season.

"I had some doubts, I didn't think I'd be able to come back," Holland said.

Battling his way back through the therapy, Holland was able to qualify for state for a second-straight year and on Friday the senior left it all on the track.

Holland posted a time of 14.19 to claim the silver in the Class 5A 110-meter hurdles.

"Makes it a lot sweeter victory," Holland said about coming back to get the win.

In 2018, Holland came to state for the first time and ended up finishing fifth overall, fueling him to come back better this season.

"Last year I was pretty nervous coming in my first year," Holland said. "This year, I was more calm and under control. I knew what was coming."
