Comets send five to Division I schools

Five players on the Contra Costa College football team this year are headed to Division I schools, said coach Alonzo Carter.
Defensive back Dominique Harrison is headed to Oregon, Carter said. Harrison, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound defensive back, was the California Region III Defensive Player of the Year this season.
Two Comets signed with Florida A & M. — Antoine Pickett, the De La Salle High graduate who was an all-California Region III defensive back this season, and fullback Keir Abrams, a Berkeley High graduate.
The other two Comets headed to Division I schools are linebackers Travon Brooks (a McClymonds High graduate) to UC Davis and Darnell Dailey, an all-California Region III selection, to Texas State.
