Assuming the ball is not returned and rolls dead in the field of play, it depends: High school: The ball is spotted where it rolls dead. College: The ball is spotted at the previous line of scrimmage or at the 20-yard line. NFL: The ball is spotted at the spot of the kick or at the 20-yard line.

AnswerYes there is the five yard difference, but the NFL ball also weighs more.AnswerThe guy who left this answer before I completely reconstructed it was an idiot. There is a 5 yard difference between pro and college, and the ball weighs more. But, most college kickers kick it to the middle of the endzone. Most pro kickers kick it to the goal line consistently. I have no idea where you're gtting this 10 yard line stuff from. So it really evens out.
That's where the kicker places the ball for kick offs.

"40 yd line." Wrong - it is the 30 yard line now. HS still uses the 40 but college went to the 30 in 2007.
The kickoff is from the kicking team's 30 yard line making the kickoff travel 70 yards to reach the end zone.
A goal keeper can not do it when he is out side of the 18 yard line mark.
