In football(soccer), we often see defenders heading the ball almost 25-30 yards, and seemingly light touches taking the ball very high. It's also said that the football is very light and hence is difficult to keep low while shooting. Why is that? Is the ball filled differently? Or are those balls made in a different way?
There's no fundamental difference in the ball or anything else - professional players just have (much) better technique than you or me, so everything just happens much faster, and speed speeds height.
