Has he always been a lot bigger than the other kids? Reason I ask is that I have seen this with a few kids who got into that habit when they were young and much bigger than the other kids and either didn't want to hurt them or got penalties for being physical with much smaller kids. It's a hard habit to break after the kids start to catch up in size (like in high school). If that's the case then maybe he doesn't even know that he is doing it and just needs to be convinced that it's ok to play physically now that the size difference has deminished.
If he doesn't play physical because he doesn't want to then that is a tough thing to get a guy to do. Lots of guys either have it or they don't.
