Plymouth defender Gary Sawyer has agreed a new three-year deal at the club.
The 22-year-old has been rewarded for his progress with a new improved deal to keep him at Home Park until the summer of 2010.
Pilgrims boss Ian Holloway believes Sawyer deserves his new deal.
"I think Gary Sawyer is going to be an outstanding young gentleman and an outstanding young player," Holloway told his club's official website.
"I don't see anything stopping him being a top-level player. He's quick, he's hungry and, for someone who is not the tallest, he's great in the air.
"He can play at left-back or as a left-sided centre-back, and I think he could maybe even play the holding role in midfield.
"I like everything about him. He's an absolutely top-class young gentleman.
"I never pull any punches or tell any lies. I'm very proud of him and so should his family be. I know they are."
