Awaiting takeoff on runway; we decided to do a static takeoff due to the gusty winds. Both engines were run up to 1.4 EPR; and all gauges were indicating normally. The first officer (PF) requested autothrottles on; and the takeoff roll commenced. All initial indications remained normal; and at the 80 KT power check; both engines looked good. Very shortly thereafter; I noticed a yaw to the left. When I checked the instruments; I noticed that the left engine appeared to have failed; all the gauges on that side were rolling back. At approximately 100 KTS; I announced the abort; took control of the aircraft and brought us to a stop. We were able to exit the runway at the intersection of runway 33; and then stopped on the taxiway to assess the situation. The first officer made a PA to inform the passenger; and we checked with the flight attendants to make sure everyone was seated and that there were no injuries. Brake temperatures were within limits; so we coordinated with operations and ground to return to the gate.

Title: MD80 SERIES ENG FAILED DURING TKOF ROLL. TKOF REJECTED AT APPROXIMATELY 100 KTS.
Narrative: AWAITING TKOF ON RWY; WE DECIDED TO DO A STATIC TKOF DUE TO THE GUSTY WINDS. BOTH ENGS WERE RUN UP TO 1.4 EPR; AND ALL GAUGES WERE INDICATING NORMALLY. THE FO (PF) REQUESTED AUTOTHROTTLES ON; AND THE TKOF ROLL COMMENCED. ALL INITIAL INDICATIONS REMAINED NORMAL; AND AT THE 80 KT PWR CHK; BOTH ENGS LOOKED GOOD. VERY SHORTLY THEREAFTER; I NOTICED A YAW TO THE L. WHEN I CHKED THE INSTS; I NOTICED THAT THE L ENG APPEARED TO HAVE FAILED; ALL THE GAUGES ON THAT SIDE WERE ROLLING BACK. AT APPROX 100 KTS; I ANNOUNCED THE ABORT; TOOK CTL OF THE ACFT AND BROUGHT US TO A STOP. WE WERE ABLE TO EXIT THE RWY AT THE INTXN OF RWY 33; AND THEN STOPPED ON THE TXWY TO ASSESS THE SITUATION. THE FO MADE A PA TO INFORM THE PAX; AND WE CHKED WITH THE FLT ATTENDANTS TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE WAS SEATED AND THAT THERE WERE NO INJURIES. BRAKE TEMPS WERE WITHIN LIMITS; SO WE COORDINATED WITH OPS AND GND TO RETURN TO THE GATE.
