General Health | Speed

Hello. I play football at a HighSchool. I'm 6feet and 176 pounds, and I play Offensive Linemen and Inside Linebacker. I used to play all linemen but I did a lot of cardio exercises and got a little quicker to play linebacker. Hopefully I'll get to play as a Running Back in the next season. I want to get faster, quicker, increase my agility, and have explosive movements. I don't have money to buy all the equipments offered online (; Any suggestion/workout plan?
