Dorian Alan Peña (born October 12, 1977 in Cheverly, Maryland)[1] is a Filipino-American professional basketball player who plays for the Barako Bull Energy Cola in the Philippine Basketball Association.[2] Nicknamed the "Junkyard Dawg" for his consistent plays of putbacks and offensive rebounds. He previously played for the Pasig-Rizal Pirates in the defunct Metropolitan Basketball Association before being recruited by the Beermen.

A Mythical Five member in the 2004–05 season, the 6-6 slotman was relegated to the Second Team the following year. He was one of the only three locals to average in double-double during a season, the other two being Eric Menk and Asi Taulava, both former Most Valuable Player winners. Peña averaged a career-best 13.2 points and 11.5 boards per game in the 2005–06 season and has been consistent since then.

After many successful years with the Beermen, he was traded to the Express along with Dondon Hontiveros, Paul Artadi and Danny Seigle for Nonoy Baclao, Rey Guevarra and Rabeh Al-Hussaini.
