"Designed by strength and conditioning coach John Sauer in 1995, the Joseph W. Montgomery Strength Training Center is located in the lower level of William & Mary Hall. This 5,000-square foot facility contains 12,000 pounds of free weights, 5,000 pounds of dumbbells and 3,200 pounds of rubber bumper plates. In addition it has 12 custom built olympic platforms, 16 multipurpose power racks, four bench press and incline stations, a fully equipped plyometric area and also a wide variety of selectorized machines. The facility is named after Joseph W. Montgomery, former All-American center for the Tribe football squad in the early 1970's, whose generous donation allowed the construction of the center."

"William & Mary's Director of Speed, Strength and Conditioning, John Sauer, was recently recognized for his 22 years of service to the Tribe's athletics program, as the College named its new training area in his honor at the conclusion of the annual football alumni banquet.

"The John Sauer Speed and Conditioning Room, located within the Montgomery Strength Training Center on the lower level of William & Mary Hall, is a 2,500-square foot training area that was brought on-line this spring (2010) and expands the Tribe's total training area to approximately 8,500-square feet."
