His near foot moves towards the bag and at the same time his head aims for the front of the bag while he wishbone blocks it (uses an open step). He should drive the bag towards the coach and past the cone. The cones are five yards apart. You should try for 3 reps on each side for each player. A down blocks purpose to drive the defender off and down the LOS.
