The Virginia Steelers was establish in 2009 in Herndon Virginia with the goal of giving athletes the opportunity to play minor league football with a professionally run organization. We believe that the Northern Virginia area has plenty of talent to build a successful team as the area has produced professional athletes like Chris Warren (Seattle Seahawks), Ratcliff Thomas (New England Patriots) and most recently, Westfield’s Eddie Royal (Denver Broncos) just to name a few. We believe that the area would have produced more professional athletes if players had a second chance to pursue their dreams after high school or College. We Believe the Virginia Steelers can provide that second chance by giving players the opportunity to improve their skills while in transition from High School to College or from College to other professional leagues. We would like the Virginia Steelers to serve as a transitioning point for athletes trying to get to the next level. One of our goals is to establish relationships with pro agents, professional leagues like the Canadian Football league and Division I Universities to try and help players get to the next level. If you categorize yourself as one of these individuals or just want a chance to compete at the minor league level then the Virginia Steelers is the organization for you.

Back for the 2014 Season, July 8th, 2013
The Steelers staff is very excited to have Lionel Breaux back this season as he continues his campaign to make an NFL roster. Breaux was highly sought after by NFL scouts in the 2011 draft upon graduating from Ole Miss. Lionel is still in contact with a few NFL teams and hopes to get a call very soon for the 2013 NFL season.

8-20-2014 Steelers Clip Blackhawk's Wings
The Men of Steel got back to winning this past weekend against a very game Blackhawks team. Kevin Ashcraft hooked up with Damont Jackson early in the first quarter for a 45 yard touchdown pass to put the Steelers ahead 6-0. The Blackhawks came right back on the following kickoff return and would start their second series of the game from the Steelers 45 yard line but the Steelers defense was stingy and wouldn’t give up any points. Later in the second quarter the Blackhawks would put points on the board with a 55 yard touchdown pass to tie the ball game up 6-6. Ashcraft would later connect with Jackson again to take a 13-6 lead into half time. Both teams would stand strong on defense to start the second half but it was the Steelers who would put an offensive drive together first when Claude Johnson capped off a 5min march with a 2yard Touchdown run to go up 20-6. The Blackhawks would not go away quietly as they returned the kickoff to the Steelers 3 yard line. The Steel Curtain appeared to be making a goal line stance until the Blackhawks swept to the left side of the defense for a two yard score to close the gap 20-14. The Steelers Defense would increase the lead back to two scores when Linebacker Terrance Fells-Danzer returned an interceptions 60 yards to the house to make the score 28-14. The Steelers offense would close the show with a two-headed ground and pound run game with Claude Johnson and Chris Coats and ran out of time on the Blackhawks 10 yard line to end the game. The Steelers didn’t look impressive at times and seem to barely get passed the Blackhawks this past weekend. The Steelers Kickoff team has been a serious problem and has given up points and costly field position all season. Hopefully the Steelers come up with a solution by this weekend because the Rams will be looking to avenge an early season loss to the Steelers and will be trying to improve to 3-3 on the year.
