Eugene Philip Amano (born on March 1, 1982 in Manila, Philippines) is an Filipino offensive lineman for the Tennessee Titans.

He attended Rancho Bernardo High School in San Diego, California, where he was an all-conference performer as an offensive and defensive lineman during his senior season and also lettered in basketball and track.

Amano late into his senior year had no scholarship offers and planned to walk-on to either the University of New Mexico or San Diego State University. But when SE Missouri State called one of his high school coaches about players on his team, he sold the recruiters on Amano. The recruiters acquired a tape of Amano and immediately offered him a scholarship. He attended Southeast Missouri State University. As a senior, he won the Division I-AA Dave Rimington Trophy, given annually to top center in college football at each level of competition. Amano was also named first-team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association, The NFL Draft Report and Football Gazette.

Amano is one of three NFL players to be born in the Philippines, along with Tim Tebow and Fred Jones.
