Yes. Once an umpire has called play to continue or has not blown his whistle to stop play, any player on the field can kick a goal from inside the boundary line at any time; there are no formal restrictions on who, when, where, or how as long as the ball is considered to be within the field of play.

Even when a player is awarded a free kick due to an opposition player kicking the ball out of play on the full, the player taking the free kick is quite at liberty to kick a goal directly from that boundary line free kick.

How do you drop kick an American football?

You drop kick an American Football by letting the football touch the ground just before you kick it. You hold the football with the laces up, the point out, and the football about waist high. You drop the ball so that it lands on a flat part just behind the point between two seams. It touches the ground a split second before you kick it. The objective is to kick it between the goal posts. A drop kick scores an extra point or a field goal. Thus, a player can be standing on the 10 yard line after a touchdown. He can look at the defense. If they are set up to try to block the kick, he can try to pass the ball for 2 points. If they are set up to defend against the pass, he can drop kick for one. He can be on the 30 yard line. If the opposition is in one defense, he can drop kick for a field goal, otherwise he can punt to put them near the goal, or even try to pass for a first down. If he is good, the drop kick can be an effective weapon.

What is a goal kick?

A goal kick is a direct free-kick awarded to the defending team. It is awarded when a player from the attacking team causes the ball to cross the goal line and a goal is not awarded (for example, because the ball went wide of the goal, or a the ball crossed to goal line as a result of an indirect free-kick). A goal-kick is taken by the goalkeeper or any defending player placing the ball in his own goal area (six yard box) and hoofing the ball upfield. Technically a hoof is not compulsory, but the fast majority of goal-kicks are hoofed upfield. All members of the attacking team must leave the penalty area until the ball has left the penalty area following a goal kick. The ball must leave the penalty directly from the kick. If the kicker fails to kick the ball outside the penalty area, the kick is retaken. A goal can be scored from a goal kick, because a goal can be scored from a direct free-kick. An own-goal cannot be scored from a goal kick, because an own-goal cannot be scored from a direct free-kick. A goal kick is called a goal kick because it is taken from the goal area (six yard box).
