The 4-year-old boy in Iowa who was hit in the head with a football thrown by Sen. Marco Rubio this week (R-Fla.) says he’ll be ready for the GOP presidential candidate next time.

“Hey, Rubio, when you get back to Iowa, I’ll be ready for you, Rubio,” the boy, identified by The Des Moines Register as Brody Dill, says in a video posted by his uncle, state Sen. Jack Whitver.

{mosads}Whitver, Rubio’s state campaign chairman, hosted a campaign event Monday where Rubio was seen tossing the football to the boy, hitting him in the face.

Rubio’s campaign store also rolled out football-themed apparel after the muffed catch:
