Dorenbos tells SportsRadio WIP that “it’s matter of my strengths and weaknesses compared to the other contestants. I gotta find material that brings that out, so the more I can involve the judges and interact, I think that’s a strength.”

“One he played and now he’s a coach. He understands how to be a player. There’s certain ways to handle certain people. People get ready for games differently, and work out differently, it’s about finding what you need to get ready, and Doug gives you the freedom to get ready to play. He handles you as an adult. I love Coach Pederson.”
