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.

The Steelers began off-season training this past weekend with Claudy Abranchess, head trainer and owner of the Grind in Herndon Virginia (13849 Park Center Road, 703-475-1611). Claudy has experience working with D1 and Professional athletes. The Steelers fell short of the 2014 TFL Championship by two points and are committed to working harder in the off season to acheive their goal of getting to the championship in 2015. The Steelers organization believes that being in better team shape going into the 2015 seasson is one of the elements that will give them a competitive advantage for the season opener against two year defending champions, Prince William- Monarchs in July. The Steelers are still looking to add key players to their roster for the 2015 season; If you believe you can help the Steelers get the TFL Championship contact Brian Monticue at 703-395-0349.
