Check to see if it has spark, if not then there is a problem with the ignition system.

several items are due checkout, plug wires, coil, check the plugs for fouling etc. also if the engine spins freely when started, but has no start, could be compression issues caused by a slightly warped head, worn out rings and the like..Fuel delivery could be a problem too..fuel filter could be an issue. I'd check out the electrics first (easier to replace)then a fuel system check, then do a compression check if the electrics/fuel are good.
