Such was the case on Sunday in Oakland when Dorenbos hosted a math teacher from his Pacifica High School in California. Mark Zulauf taught Dorenbos in 11th and 12th grade.
“I respected him as a teacher and he was really cool to me and my group of friends and, so, anytime I have a chance to give a teacher I respected a cool experience from my life now, I’m going to do it,” said Dorenbos, who introduced Zuluaf to official Ed Hochuli on Sunday. “He’s a huge football fan and a huge Ed Hochuli fan, so it was my pleasure to do it.
“Periodically, I will take some of the cleats and equipment that guys aren’t going to use any more and I ship them back to my high school, so the equipment guy at the high school mentioned to me that Mark was going to be at the Oakland game. Mark gave me a call and I was only too happy to help.
“It was great. He is one who put his hand out to me and helped me along the way. I appreciate every one of those people.”
