The Havoc is no stranger to being an underdog in the playoffs. It was just last season when Glenn Detulleo and company took down the top seeded RiverHawks in round one. Fast forward to this season’s playoff opener, and Huntsville will need to do it again as the 8th seed.
Winning in this position is something Justin Fox says is a mindset, “playoffs is a new season. Nobody is in first, nobody is in last so that’s the way we are looking at it.”
“Concentrate on the present. Don’t think about the past or the future, just play each shift as hard as you can,” Captain Sam Cannata says as he tells new players how Huntsville pulled this thing off last year.
The Changes are already noticeable at practice and Glenn Detulleo wouldn’t need to know what the calendar says to know it’s playoff time. “It’s sharper, it’s more energy. You can’t put your finger on it. There’s just something there that you can tell it’s playoff season.”
