How do you force the offense left or right on defense?

Forcing the Offense Left or Right

Set up in your defensive stance. Your left foot is forward one foot away from the offense. Now, place your left foot one foot to the left of the offense. If the offense goes to the right, they will bump into you. If the offense goes to the left, their progress will not be stopped. This is the force left position. The force right position places the right foot forward, one foot to the right of the defense. This is the direction that you want to force left-handed players.
