How do you hit a football technically so that travels with a huge velocity?

on earth, practicaly not practicle (wont say impossible). This is because of 2 things, #1 an object has to be very large to travel at a great velocity due to the amount of air pressure hitting the front as it travels faster creating "drag". #2. Friction causes things to burn up, especially small things more quickly. this means that a small object will likely not survive high velocities because it will either disentigrate due to the amount of heat and force needed to propel it or burn up because of friction created by oxygen. also because of windsheer a large dense object is needed to be able to withstand high speed travel (windsheer=airpressure increase due to speed against the object). This is why with the exception of a small glider, all planes are big huge objects wich weight at least 1 ton (look that one up yourself). In order to travel at high velocities planes generaly need more fuel wich means increasing their weight and size.

Given enough relative velocity, almost anything can. That said, you're talking about a huge amount of velocity. More likely is blunt force trauma.
