  • Fortunato Acuña, better known simply as Fort Acuña (April 17, 1948 – c. 1981), was a Filipino professional basketball player and then later coach in the Philippine Basketball Association. A 6'1" center/forward, he played for the University of the Philippines and the MICAA. He was one of the pioneers when the Philippine Basketball Association was born as he played for the Toyota Comets along with the likes of Sonny Jaworski, Ramon Fernandez and Francis Arnaiz. He retired from active play in 1978 at the age of 30. In 1979, Acuña replaced Dante Silverio as Toyota head coach and then steered the team to the Invitational Conference title over the Crispa Redmanizers with the help of import Andy Fields that same year. In 1980, during Game 3 of the All-Filipino Conference with Crispa leading league archrivals Toyota 2-0 and on the verge of a season sweep, Acuña was fired on the spot at half time by team manager Pablo Carlos for refusing to heed the latter's request to field in Jaworski. Toyota would win the game, thanks to Jaworski's inspirational play, thus preventing a Crispa sweep. But the Tamaraws would eventually lose the series and the title as the Redmanizers wrapped up the series the next game. Acuña committed suicide a year later.
