FORMER San Miguel import Terquin Mott also paid tribute to Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco following the sportsman-businessman’s passing.
Mott, who played for San Miguel in 1999 during the Commissioner’s Cup with the Beermen winning the title against Formula Shell, wrote a reply on Danny Seigle’s Instagram account honoring Cojuangco.
“My guy,” Mott wrote. “I love you, boss.”
Cojuangco’s love for the sport is already well-documented having been the project director for basketball in the 1980s and was the patron of the national team.
Cojuangco was also active in handling the basketball operations of San Miguel and later on with La Salle, leading to championships in the PBA and the UAAP.
Mott, a Coppin State product, said he remembers Cojuangco with his words of encouragement during his time with San Miguel that still has an impact to this day.
“His favorite phrase I’ll always remember. Don’t squander it all,” wrote Mott, the Best Import of the 1999 Commissioner’s Cup.
