Isaiah Márquez-Greene is a high school hockey player at Taft High School in Watertown, Connecticut.

He will reportedly attend the Special Program in Law, which automatically enrolls him in the university’s law program, according to the New York Post.

The program only accepts 10 percent of applicants.

While law school could be expensive, Isaiah receives support from New York Rangers captain Jacob Trouba, who presented him with the Garden of Dreams Inspire Scholarship at MSG on April 13, 2023.

Jacob’s only request is that Isaiah invite him to his law school.

“I know your story. I feel for you,” the hockey icon told Isaiah. “You are an amazing person.”
