Qualifications for membership include being a starter or a significant substitute in one’s last year of eligibility, achieving a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average and meeting all NCAA-mandated progress toward degree requirements and graduation.
The Ocala, Fla., native, who was a graduate student in public administration this past year, twice earned a place on the CoSIDA Academic All-District team and was selected to the Academic All-SEC squad four times.
He also made the SEC Freshman Academic Honor Roll during his redshirt season of 2006.
On the field, Lincoln finished his career sixth on Tennessee’s all-time field goal made list with 51 and was seventh in field-goal percentage at .689.
Lincoln is attempting to make a professional football team, but also has plans to join the United States’ Navy SEALs program.
