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.

HOUSTON – Matthew Boling is the fastest man in the country.

You read that right.

Not just in Houston or Texas but the United States of America, Boling holds the fastest marks in the 100-meter and 200-meter dash.

"It feels really good, I've been working really hard all year and am really happy with my times," Boling said. "But I am still hungry and know I can do better."

At the TSU Relays this past weekend, the Strake Jesuit senior posted times of 10.22 in the 100-meter dash and 20.58 in the 200-meter dash, which are both personal records.

Boling's 100-meter dash time is 0.24 seconds and his 200-meter dash mark is 0.41 seconds faster than Miami Northland High School's Tyrese Cooper times in each race.

"My goals each meet are to just progress and focus on one thing such as my block starts or drive phase so I can get ready for state," Boling said.
