Bruce German, J., Ensunsa, J. L., Gonsalves, J. L., Holt, R. R., Keen, C. L., Lazarus, S. A., Schmitz, H. H., Schramm, D. D., & Wang, J. F. (2001).

yes no 

No. It's hard to spot this without seeing the original, but you must keep the names of the authors in the same order as that in which they appear on the original article. This is because the first named author has done a larger amount of work, the second named author has done the second largest amount of work, and so on. The name 'Bruce German' is unusual, because it contains two words, but they are two parts of a family name so we do not shorten them to initials.
