TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - This year was a special one for the Lincoln High School boys basketball team. For the first time in school history, the Trojans won a Regional title, and in the process, sealed up a trip to Lakeland and the State Final Four.

The Trojans lose just a handful of seniors from that team, and on Thursday, two of them signed to play basketball at the next level. Both are headed to Georgia to Division II universities. Lorenze Cloud, a guard, inked with Albany State, while fellow guard Kyle Kincey signed with Clayton State.

"We were the first team to go to the Final Four, so that was very exciting," said Cloud. "It's something that's never been done before and I'm just looking forward to winning for the rest of my life as long as I'm playing. I've been looking forward to doing this my whole life and I'm very excited. I'm looking forward to it."

Kincey echoed the sentiment.

"A lot of people dream of this moment and it doesn't come true for everyone, but to be one of those people that it actually happens to, it's surreal," he said. "Picking a college for me, I wanted to be able to call a place my home away from home, and whenever I visited the campus and the team, that just felt like where I should be."

Kincey said he wants to major in business, while Cloud said he plans to study business marketing.
