Dr. David Ledesma is a native of Ridgecrest, California. He grew up and attended grade schools in both Trona and Ridecrest. He attended Sherman E.

Dr. Ledesma lead the offensive line and the rest of the Burros in 2001 to a Desert Sky League Championship.
After Burroughs, Dr. Ledesma continued his football career at Antelope Valley Junior college and started every game for his two years under Head Coach Brent Carder. David excelled at AVC and earned a football scholarship to Iowa Wesleyan College in Mt. Pleasent, Iowa. In Dr. Ledesma's senior year he earned offensive player of the game honors twice, the Mid-state Football association Academic all american award, as well as maintaining the highest GPA on his football team. He also graduated with honors in Science.
Throughout his football career Dr. Ledesma was able to remain remarkably healthy and uninjured. He contributed this to his weekly visits to a chiropractor. He says the weekly adjustments, combined with the soft tissue work, and rehabilitation were what kept him uninjured and on the field. His love for football combined with the help of chiropractors is what shaped his future.
Dr. Ledesma applied and was accepted to Southern California University of Health Sciences and their Los Angeles Chiropractic College.
