So what's the problem? Let him be him. If he makes friends very quickly he's obviously got SOME quality that other people like in him... Who cares if he's not super active or 'rugged'? Not every boy/guy will be a 'sports hero'. Nothing wrong with that.

If you want him to be more active sign him up for a recreational activity. Everyone has a certain sport they like or can succeed in.
If he doesn't seem very athletic don't EVER say that to him, or even think about it to much, you don't want to box him in as unathletic. He might also just be better at individual sports than group sports. So maybe he'd be really great at gymnastics or karate, but isn't as much into soccer (or w/e).
He doesn't need to be 'rugged' but I think everyone should do something that's 'active' at least for their own health. Like everyone else said though, if he's making friends and getting along with others there's no reason to care if he's a 'rugged' boy.

He sounds perfectly fine to me. (Although of course it's good for all kids, both boys and girls, to be active and healthy -- but that doesn't have to mean playing sports or doing "rugged" activities, it could just mean walking or biking to school, playing outside instead of on the computer, etc.) You haven't given us a lot of information, but it sounds like he's doing fine socially and not developmentally delayed, so what's the problem?
