Finding attributes in a list

Hi

In a list I have a number of soccer players. Each player has a
different rating for attacking, defending, midfield fitness and
goalkeeping.

I have devised a while loop that goes through this list to find the
best player at defending, attacking, midfield and goalkeeping. However
there is more than one defender per team so I therefore need it to find
the next best player.

Below is the code used to ascertain the best defender:


# STUFF TO FIND THE TOP DEFENDER
defender    = 0 # The position of defender is set to the first player
in the knowledge base
topdefender = 0
c = 3 # the defensive rating of the first player in the list
d = (len(squadList)-4) # the defensive rating of the last player in the
list.

while c <= d:
    if squadList[c] > topdefender:
        topdefender = squadList[c]
        defender  = squadList[c-3] + " " + squadList[c-2] # The
defender variable is assigned to the forename and surname of the player
    c = c + 8 # Move to the defensive rating of the next player in the
list

print defender



any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

thank you
