Eric Breland of Glenelg is built like a truck, but he moves like a luxury car.And the sophomore power forward has the Gladiators cruising toward its best basketball season since 1977 -- the season Glenelg posted a school record 18 wins and the last time it won a county championship.At 6-foot-4, 235 pounds, Breland is a lot to guard. His big frame doesn't hinder his agility in the open floor, however, nor does it stiffle his excellent jumping ability.And his huge soft hands make him a comforting target as a post player, a position he's still learning.
