Posted at 11:28 PM, Mar 09, 2020

USAFA — During the playoff season, Air Force head coach Frank Serratore will do close to anything to get his Falcons going and ready for their upcoming series.

For this season's playoff run, Serratore has brought out his new secret weapon: his dog Annie Serratore.

The cairn terrier, who is also known as the 'Lucky Lady' and "the blonde California version of Toto from Wizard of Oz', has given some rousing speeches to the Falcon hockey team the past week or so. Those pep talks have led the a sweep of Mercyhurst in the first round of the AHA playoffs.

Now Annie is back for the second round of the playoffs, as Air Force takes on RIT on quarterfinals this weekend. Annie will not be making the trip to Rochester, but Frank does say she will be supporting the Falcons back at home and will be at Air Force baseball's series this weekend against Minnesota.
