In the "About Us" section of the official website for Weimar, Texas, the small community on Interstate 10 and U.S. 90 between San Antonio, Austin and Houston describes itself as a place "where ideas begin that set trends for other small cities."

While the idea of every small town having a 6-foot-7, 320-pound offensive tackle might sound appealing, don't expect it to start trending. Talents like Ja'Braylin Thomas just don't come around that often.
