It’s what we’ve been working toward all season. Next week the Steelheads and Banshees will be traveling to Dublin, Ohio to participate in the 2014 USAFL National tournament. Like last year the Steelheads will be participating in Division III, but with a completely different set of teams in our pool. We’ll be matching up with the likes of the Ft. Lauderdale Fighting Squids, Philadelphia Hawks, and the Calgary B team. The full schedule is available at the USAFL website. The Banshees representatives will be merging with women from the San Francisco Iron Maidens and the Arizona Lady Hawks.

The Steelheads will be fielding a strong team of twenty-one players with a mix leaning to the American side. Dublin, Ohio is not close or particularly easy to get to, so we’d like to thank the following players for making the commitment to represent the Steelheads and Banshees at Nationals.
