About Me

Welcome! I'm Lance L. Cook, your Good Neighbor and local State Farm Agent for over 17 years where we have served customers in the Hickory and surrounding Catawba County area, providing them with auto, home, health and life insurance as well as financial services.

I grew up in Marietta, GA and lived there until I went to college on a full athletic scholarship in Charleston, SC at The Citadel. I also played professional football for 2.5 years in the Canadian Football League for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. After football, I worked for Simmons Mattress Company for 8 years and then worked for Clayton Homes for a year before beginning to work for State Farm as a Life Insurance Producer.

My wife, Ellen, and our three children, Lance Jr., Andy and MaryElla, and I have been enjoying the Hickory community for 17 years.

I sponsor Lenoir Rhyne Athletes, as a Member of the Big Bear Club and I also am sponsor for the Coach Mike Jacobs Football Summer Camp and the Coach Ram Baseball Summer Camp at LR University and a Diamond Sponsor for the new Lenoir Rhyne University Baseball Stadium that is being built.
