One high school football team in Washington state is such a powerhouse that no one wants to play them.

In the first three games of the season, the team from Archbishop Murphy High School outscored opponents 170 points to 0.

Now, apparently other teams in their conference would rather forfeit than get pummeled so they have decided to forfeit.

Parents and coaches from other teams, including nearby Granite Falls High School, are concerned about the emotional, devastating aftermath of this kind of defeat - and physical safety.

"We can't put our 5'8" tall, 125 pound quarterback up against their nose tackle who happens to be 6'5" and weighs over 330 pounds. He's going to put that kid in the hospital," said parent Stacey Morris.

But the team is trying to take each game in stride.

"We can't focus on what other schools do and we just have to focus on what we need to do to prepare for the next upcoming game," said from Archbishop Murphy player, Jackson Yost.

So what happens now?

Well, the team at Archbishop Murphy says while no one has scored a point against them this year, they've had their fair share of losses and they just want to play.
