Shooting rubber-

It will actually vary, based on your ISO setting. If we use ISO 100, as our base line, the P-20 will reach out to about 24 feet. If you want to go further out than that, I can teach you how to get out to 40 feet, but that will take some "boot strapping" Please let me know what you want to do??

I want to get it, the furthest as possible for night time football shots? Or is this not the flash for this? Is there another one, that will go farther?????? And how far does the internal one go?

In all honesty you can get out to about 35 feet. Beyond that, you will have to consider a fast lens or the addition of a slave flash. Can you tell me more about your requirements please.

Shooting Rubber-

At 50' to 70' it will depend entirely on the carmera. To really solve this problem, let's first examine the camera that you are using for these sports photos. So please share with me which camera you are using??

There is a nature photographer (has or had a regular article in Petersens Photographic). That uses a flas and camera mounted on a rifle stock with a fressnel lens several inches in front of is (vivitar) flash that shoots light out very far.
