Youth and college
Prior to playing in the United States, Herbers competed for both FC Twente, SC Preußen Münster and VfL Rhede at youth level. He then went to play three years of college soccer in the United States at Creighton University between 2013 and 2015 before signing a Generation Adidas contract with Major League Soccer.
Herbers was selected 6th overall in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft by Philadelphia Union. He made his Union debut on March 6, 2016, as an 83rd-minute substitute during a 0–2 loss against FC Dallas. He began his career playing between the Union and Bethlehem Steel FC, making a total of six Steel appearances and scoring two goals in 2016, including the franchise’s first-ever goal in a 1-0 win on March 25 in their first match against FC Montreal. He scored his first goal for the Union during a 3-2 win vs. Columbus Crew SC on June 1, 2016 in the 83rd minute after being subbed on 8 minutes prior. In 2016, he totaled 32 league appearances, scoring three goals and leading all league rookies with seven helpers. He also scored one goal and one assist in two U.S. Open Cup appearances. 2017 was a frustrating year for Herbers as he totaled only 15 total appearances. He scored his first goal of the season during a substitute appearance in a 4-0 win at D.C. United. Herbers suffered a groin injury vs. Colorado Rapids on May 20, 2017 and missed a month before returning to practice and suffering a sports hernia, ending his 2017 season.
