Tulane quarterback J.P. Losman was named the Louisiana Offensive Player of the Week Monday by the Louisiana Sportswriter's Association after lifting the Green Wave to a 28-18 season-ending win over East Carolina. Losman, a senior from Venice, Calif. threw four touchdown passes in the game, including an 87-yard bomb to Chris Bush which ranks as the second-longest pass completion in Tulane history.

Losman finished the day 14-of-20 for 227 yards and one interception as Tulane rallied to give 11 seniors a positive end to their careers and finish 5-7 on the year. Losman's 33 touchdown passes in 2003 rank second on the Green Wave passing charts and are tied for the third-highest total in the country this year. He is the only Conference USA quarterback to surpass the 3,000-yard mark in passing yardage so far this season with 3,077 yards on 251-of-422 passing.

His 2003 season totals for passing yards, completions and total offense rank among the Top Three in Tulane history. He also completed his college career ranked either third or fourth on the Tulane charts in every major passing and total offense category.

Losman picks up the LSWA honor for the second time this season. He was also honored by the Louisiana Sportswriter's following the Army game in September. Four different Green Wave players earned LSWA Player of the Week Honors five times this year.
