Two things to look for:
1) Being that it's a Ford, Google where the fuel cutoff switch is. It's supposed to deny fuel in the event of an accident to stop fires. My Ranger was terrible about activating it for no particular reason. On the Ranger it was behind the passenger side kick panel. On F-series trucks it's near the brake pedal up under the dash.

2) Verify that the little switch your clutch is supposed to hit is being activated. It's a switch that tells your car "yes, the clutch is depressed. Allow the starter to work."
I had THAT problem on my Ranger too, fixed it by bending a little tiny piece of metal and securing it with duct tape.

Hope this helps!
