Spartan Shield

Ani Pradeep
Ani Pradeep is currently a Senior in high school and plans to study medicine at an undecided college. While being very invested in his studies, Ani also expands his musical skills with his clarinet year round. He made the Iowa All-State band in 2019 and is currently working to become a two year member of the All-State band. In his freetime Ani enjoys running, hanging out with friends, traveling, volunteering at the Mississippi blood bank and watching sports. However, Ani’s favorite hobby is football, whether it’s watching the Green Bay Packers or working to draft the best fantasy football team, Ani is very passionate about the sport. Therefore, it is no surprise that he spends some of his weekends playing in the IFL, a pick-up football league created by himself and some other friends. Ani understands that this year will bring unique challenges, but he is excited and looking forward to the future as a News Editor at the Spartan Shield and a Senior at Pleasant Valley High School.
