What factors truly account for speed/vertical/agility?

need to get all these things. There's a kid on my football team who is going to be my competition for the Safety spot. He's shorter then me(5'7) and I'm 5'8. He has very little bodyfat. He is one of the fastest kids on the team. I am stronger then him, but he is much faster/agile then me.
