His career stats are great as since a sophomore campaign he has been a true hard hitting ILB with a total of 32 games played, 144 solo tackles, 179 assisted tackles, 323 total tackles, and a average of 35.5 tackles for loss. Herbert will defiantly bring the energy to the Furman Paladin defense.

Raleigh is also the all-time leading tackler at West Forsyth finishing 1st team with 111 tackles, 14 tackles was for a loss handing out 5 sacks also, he also added six QB pressures while forcing 4 forced fumbles, a INT, and 4 pass break ups. He will give Furman a very versatile ILB to cover any style offense that Furman may encounter. The Future looks bright for the Furman defense with a ILB like Raleigh headed into to Paladin Stadium.
