It might be worth talking to the ref about it. Not in front of everyone, but maybe during warmup just casually come over to him and say, "hey, you see #4 over there? Can you keep an eye on him diving at people's feet? He's not trying to hurt anyone, but he doesn't seem to understand where the line is drawn. 'Preciate it."
And that's it. The ref won't promise anything, but he'll see what you're seeing when it happens. And unlike the other players, the ref is in a position to pull that guy aside with some authority and explain that he'll spend half the game in the box if he keeps making dangerous plays.
