**Steve**, Tuesday, June 18, 2013 at 4:27pmThe vertical component of the velocity is

Vy = V cos 44.6 = .712V

The height of the ball in feet is given by

h(t) = (.712V)t - 16t^2

So, if h(t) = 0 when t=3.6,

.712V*3.6 - 16*3.6^2 = 0

V = 80.9 ft/s

Guy's a pretty decent kicker, since the average kickoff speed is about 50 mph = 73 ft/s
