Yes, it looks like an Atlantic Purse-web Spider, Sphodros atlanticus.

I came across this spider along a utility easement at Falls of the Nuese Lake in Raleigh, NC on July 8, 2018 at 8:10 a.m. This spider poses a defensive stand by rearing on this rear two legs and displaying its fangs and raising its front six legs. The underside of the abdomen pale spots.
