Nice one, Howie! From the Kitsap Sun (http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/2011/jan/25/gonzagas-sacre-145best-is-yet-to-come-for-7/).

BREMERTON — SPOKANE— Robert Sacre is 7 feet tall, so the man is hard to miss.

Of course, even if you don't spot Sacre right away, you can probably hear him if you wander into the same area code.

"What you see is what you get: A really big personality," said Steven Gray, Sacre's teammate on the Gonzaga basketball team.

"I think I get that from my grandpa," Sacre said with one of his frequent, wide smiles. "He's a rooster, I guess, is the best way I can describe him.

"He's a proud, big-chested man that is just ready to say whatever he has to say, and he isn't afraid to say it."

Gray and Gonzaga coach Mark Few certainly aren't afraid to say that they admire Sacre (pronounced Sack-RAY) for all the hard work the junior center has put in to develop into one of the best big men on the West Coast.

"He came in very raw (but) he's always been a freak athlete with size," Gray said.

"He's a plow horse that you can just count on," Few said. "As loyal a guy as you'll ever find.

"I mean, he's just going to work, and he's going to do it with a great attitude and a contagious enthusiasm."

"But you know what? I'm just happy to be with a great group of guys that will do anything for each other."
