Hi Casey,
A good battery should maintain over 9.6 volts during cranking. Do you hear anything other than the one click sound of the solenoid when you turn and hold the key? Does it make a whining sound? Ford's are prone to bad connections, clean the wires and terminals. Don't forget a clean ground also, from block to battery and from starter to block [if painted over]. If the voltage drops to 10 volts but does not turn the motor I would assume the starter is the problem.
Good luck, Dave.
