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.

7-19-2014 -Steelers win season opener against Raiders 14-2
The Steelers won their season opener this past weekend at home against the DMV Raiders 14-2, its their first opening win since the inaugural 2011 season. The Steelers got the job done on the ground early with tough running by Chris Coats and put points on the board first with his 30 yard touchdown run to go up 6-0. The Steelers special teams would give up a safety to make the score 6-2 at half time. Quarterback Toney Hysjulien connected with Lionel Breaux in the 3rd Quarter for a 45 yard TD to put the Steelers up 14-2. Defense would pitch a shut out against the Raiders offense with two interceptions by Kevin Ashcraft and constant pressure by linebacker Terrance "Super Man" Fells Danzer who turned in 3 sacks on the night. The Steelers didn't look impressive in their win and will need to improve offensively and on special teams if they expect to be a playoff caliber team.
