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.

9-9-2014 Monarchs rule over the Steelers
.One controversy in coaching philosophy is what to do during a bye week? One thought is to practice because you don’t want players to get rusty with a long break and the other thought is to let guys rest up and get healthy. The Steelers chose to do the latter and it showed this past weekend in their rematch against the Monarchs. The Steelers showed much improvement on special teams and didn’t give up any long runbacks to put the Monarchs in scoring range but they didn’t show much improvement defensively or offensively. The Steelers defense contained quarter back and running back Daniel Stewart a little better but they were both still affective in the run game. The Steelers secondary was missing key players like cornerback Kalvin Jackson and strong safety Ave Johnson but Mike Carter and Terrance –Fells Danzer stepped in a played well. The Defense held the Monarchs to 16 points until the 4th quarter when the defensive line (without defensive end Tyrone Lewis) seem to run out of gas against the pounding run game of the Monarchs. Offensively, the Steelers looked very rusty with the long lay off. The Steelers offense failed to put up any points on the board and was shut out; running backs Claude Johnson and Chris Coates ran well but the Steelers couldn’t sustain a long drive. The Steelers were missing a few weapons with Damont Jackson unable to play and Lionel Breaux went of the game in the second quarter with an injury and would not return to play. The Steelers are going to need all hands on deck against the Bills this weekend.
