Yes. That is one way kickers and punters used to "juice" footballs. Other ways include: heating a football in a microwave or an oven before the games, filling the ball with helium instead of oxygen (doesn't really make a big difference), loosening the laces on a football to give the ball a larger surface area to kick.

### Which would go faster a D-inflated football or a inflated football?

An inflated football is essentially more aerodynamic than a deflated football. The inflated one would travel faster and a greater distance. However, if you dropped them both at the same time, they would it the ground at the same time, because gravity pulls everything downward at 9.81 meters per second squared (ignoring the effects of air resistance in this last case).
