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.
