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.

8-23-2014- Steelers vs Rams Game Pics
The Steelers look to bounce back this weekend after their tough season opener lost to the Prince William Monarchs 29-8. Based on the amount of mistakes against the Monarchs the Steelers have a lot of work to do this week to get things going in the right direction. The DMV Raiders will be looking to get on track as well as they suffered a tough 24-20 loss to the Woodland Tigers in the TFL Classic. This game will be a good test for both teams to see how well they respond to adversity. This game could also have an affect on each team's playoff outlook as a loss will mean a 0-2 start to the season and will put them behind the eight ball.
This highly anticipated rematch of last year's conference finals lived up to it's hype in first half and had all the drama of two heavy weight boxers going at it. The Monarchs offense started the game and appeared to have no problem at all moving the ball down the field with a tough run game and scored on their opening drive to go up 6-0. The Steelers offense would answer on their first possession and capped off a 65 yard drive with a touchdown run by Terrrance Fells-Danzer and a two point conversion by Chris Coats. The Monarchs offense would regain the lead 12-8 with a quarterback keeper. The Steeler offense then had the chance to take the lead but fumbled on the 1 yard line. The Monarch offense would capitalize off the fumble and march the ball down the field and go up 19-8 at the half. The second half of the game would be all Monarchs as the Steelers defense struggled to keep up with the Monarchs passing attack that put up10 more points to close the show 29-3
