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.
One Team, One Heart Beat, One Goal, To Win

9-29-2014 Steelers vs DMV Raiders recap
The Steelers finally got back on track this past weekend against the DMV Raiders in a very exciting battle to close out the regular season. The Steelers had to come from behind in this one when the Raiders started fast and jumped out to an early 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Raiders quarterback Todd Osborne came out gun slinging in a spread offense against his former team and looked to be focused on coming away with a win. The Steelers secondary looked confused with their coverage assignments and made Osborne look unstoppable. The Steelers offense ignited the team when Quarterback Kevin Ashcraft connected with Wide Receiver Lionel Breaux for a 60 yard touchdown to put the Steelers on the Board 14-6. The Steelers defense made the necessary adjustments and Safety Terrance Fells-Danzer came up with a big pic 6 that got the entire Steelers bench fired up. Running back Claude Johnson would take a sweep to the left for the two point conversion thus locking up the game 14-14 at the half. The Steelers would dominate the entire second half and use their two headed ground attack with Claude Johns and Chris Coates to put a drive together that in the third quarter that was capped off with at 30 yard touchdown pass to Joseph Edwards to go up 20-14. The Steelers defense kept Osborne off balanced by switching up coverage and slowed down the Raiders air assault and kept them out of the endzone for the remainder of the night. Chris Coats would put the nail in the coffin when he took a run off tackle 65 yards to the house. The Steelers offense couldn’t have gotten back on track at a better time after only scoring one touchdown in the previous three games. The Steelers offense is going to have to put up big numbers against the Prince William Monarchs on October 11th in the first round of the playoffs in an Ali vs Frazier style rubber match to settle who is the best Virginia team in the TFL once and for all.
9-29-2014 Steelers secure a spot in the playoffs for the first time in Steeler history.
The Steelers will be taking on the Prince William Monarchs on October 11th for the first round of the TFL playoffs. Congratulations Men Of Steel
