The Mid-State Steel started play in 2002 and are now members of the Mid States Football League. The Steel are based out of Peoria, IL and play their home games at Peoria Stadium 315 E War Memorial Dr. The Steel have a rich tradition of winning football with a style that represents the hard working people of the midwest and Central Illinois in particular, including winning the 2005 USFA National Championship.

The Steel pride themselves on a balanced offense that has historically featured a high flying passing game and a dominating power running game. Solid special teams highlighted by an exciting return game. And most of all an intimidating defense that brings heavy pressure and aims to outhit every team and force turnovers that puts the offense on a short field.
