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.
