If you had left out the Beach boys reference...maybe...LOL.

"I was born in 1887 in Oklahoma. I participated in athletics in school and someone noticed that I possessed some very unique skills. I entered the 1912 Olympics and won gold medals in the Decathalon and Penthahlon. In college, in set records in football. I played major league baseball and managed a professional football team.

My career was rocked with controversy when I was stripped of my Olympic medals. A lot of people felt that it was because of my ancestry. No problem, years after my death, my medals were returned to my heirs." I was given a title that if I were alive when it was awarded, I would have probably turned it down because of my modesty."

Who am I?

I would, but anyone under 40 has no real history to mine for hints.
